The genesis for the publication of The Cheyenne Wars Atlas goes back to June 1992. It was then that the Combat Studies Institute CSI conducted the first Sioux Wars Staff Ride for Brigadier General William M. Steele, Deputy Commandant of the US Army Command and General Staff College CGSC. The next year, CSI expanded the staff ride into a full elective course for the college and supported the course with the publication of the Atlas of the Sioux Wars First edition, September 1992. The atlas, a work compiled by Dr. William Glenn Robertson, Dr. Jerold E. Brown, Major William M. Campsey, and Major Scott R. McMeen, represented a modest effort to rectify the omission of the Indian Wars in the West Point atlas series by examining the Armys campaigns against the Sioux Indians on the Northern Plains. In 2006, CSI published a second edition of the Atlas of the Sioux Wars with updated narratives and full color maps. That atlas has since served as an educational reference for hundreds of students of US Army campaigns against the Sioux during the conduct of dozens of Sioux Wars staff rides.
