On the road...still

I've been on the road since last Friday collecting information, photos, and video for additions to the website. I've traveled through Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska and have amassed over 2,500 miles so far. I still have several more sites to visit. I've meet some wonderful people and seen some amazing sites. The scene of Crazy Horse's death at Fort Robinson, NE affected me the most. I kept finding myself going back to the site.

The West continues to amaze me. It's so big and open. The terrain and people are so varied. When I'm making one of my 500 mile drives to an obscure battleground I keep looking at all the open space and wonder why all the fighting had to happen. There's plenty of room for all. I keep coming back to the White Man's greed and the Indians failure to grasp what was happening to them. I'll have plenty about this on the website in August and September.

I've getting really behind on answering email but will ctach them up a day or two after I return home.

Custer was a foolhardy idiot. If only he had died during the Civil War...think of the lives that would have been spared. My people celebrate his death.

As brave and tenacious as he no doubt was, he was equally foolhardy. A man of conflicting acts that make you think well of him and also ill. While we should celebrate no one's death, one wonders what may have occured were he no there. Certainly the whites would have had their way no matter what, but what trail that may have oocurred on will never be known.

I'm goint to try and walk from the Crows Nest to Last Stand Hill. I've got the name and phone number of the rancher who owns the land which the Crows Nest sits on but that is about it. Has anyone ever done it? Any Suggestions?

Yes, I am related his grandfather is my distant grandfather. I am heading to Gettysburg in a couple weeks and going to make sure I visit the East Cavalry Field. He was great in some ways but he is crazy in some ways. But if you read the bio on any 'so-called great man' you will find the same. I do not celebrate any one dying. BTW, I am married to a Cherokee, now how things have changed!

Well I was disappointed to find out that Gettysburg does not have the East Cavalry Field as part of the preserved area. But I had a great time any way and growing knowledge of what happened during this battle. Definitely recommend the visit!

The last of Custers Scouts
Battle of the Little Big Horn

Placed in memory of Clinton P. Slick
I cannot find a list of Custers scouts. Anyone out there have any info on Dan Anker?

With my 6 yr old son and a family firend, I visited the Battlefield late August, 1973. I had been teaching history to my son and the 18 yr old for the whole months trip, and they both devoured the books, etc., that I had bought along the way, from L.A. to NY and back. When I asked them what left the greatest memory with them, they both said the Little Big Horn.
I was amazed at the number of people, Natie Americans and all the rest of us, who at some time went to their knees in prayer, some doing their Rosary beads, ALL in the greatest reverance for where they were. All 3 of us heard the guns, the cries, that are in the wind. It was a very moving experience.
I am sorry for those of you who have so much hate in your hearts that you can still hate the soldiers...or the Indians, for that matter. We just finished watching an excellent TV program about the Battle. NO ONE was using many brain cells that day!! They acted and re-acted to what was going on around them. The brutality of the Indians to the corpses went on until dusk, and is now evident in the bones of the dead...knife slashes as deep as the bones on all limbs, etc. The remoal of eyes and genitals. Totally unnecessary, but a culturaal thing with the Indians. And not one of them thought about the hatred these acts would bring down on them as these acts became known.
I am thankful for the people who still go there, and offer prayers for ALL who gave their lives that day.
If you go to Pearl Harbor and go to the U.S.S.Arizona Monument, you will experience much the same sensation as at Little Big Horn. Something that NEVER had to happen, but was directed by a bunch of idiots from whom we now buy cars to the ruination of our economy!! If you can't get a job, check your garage and see what is parker there.

GAC was not crazy. He was brave and courageous, very much in tune with the politics and military thought of 1876. I do believe he was arrogant to a fault and his arrogance caused the lose of many lives. I also believe the Indians knew full well what was happening to them and their way of life.
