Genocide on the Great Plains

In 1868 the US government notified Plains Indian tribes that it was going to war against all hostile Indians and that those bands that were friendly should so signify their desire for peace by camping along the Washita River near present-day Cheyenne, Oklahoma. On November 27, 1868 Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custerís 7th U.S. Cavalry attacked that peaceful encampment, killing many, while the remaining tribes fled without provisions into the freezing cold. This is a record of that genocidal act, which crushed the Plains tribes.
