Other information that will be new to many people includes the army killings of an Oglala woman and her children at nearby White Horse Creek on the same day that Wounded Knee took place, and a personal account of the head-on train crash involving soldiers of the Seventh Cavalry as they returned to Fort Riley, Kansas, at the close of the Pine Ridge Campaign. In sum, I've attempted to place Wounded Knee in a broad context regarding its background, and to provide a detailed perspective regarding events on the ground as well as its aftermath. That is an amazing collection of new material!
Those discoveries make your book so incredibly important. You graciously approach the debate about Wounded Knee being a battle vs. In my opinion, one of your best comments is found in endnote 2 on page This might seem an odd question, but why did you make that point in the endnote instead of the body of the work? I believed that the statement in Note 2 page is more appropriate as an adjunct to the content in the first paragraph of Chapter 16, though I agree that contextually it fits as you suggest.
Either way, however, I hope that readers will consider and contemplate its meaning fully and carefully. I'm glad that it resonated so powerfully with you, and that other readers might view it in the same way. I'm sure they will. Is there anything you're working on that we can look forward to reading in the future? Beyond recording and reflecting on events at Pine Ridge and his army life around Fort Niobrara near Valentine, Nebraska during the period of the closing frontier, this soldier witnessed the brief effort by the federal government to enlist Indian men as soldiers in the Regular Army.
That is an impressive body of work for us to enjoy in the future. For me, I'm especially interested in the Cheyenne outbreak from Fort Robinson.
