    You dropped a name ...

    The name we chose was, a southern Arapaho chieftain killed at Sand Creek.
    A vast number of soldiers sent west to kill Indians were criminals, renegades, syphilitics, drunks and violent sociopaths mostly immune to Army discipline.

    How many massacres took place that no one save a few knew about? I've heard vague references to  tribes passing down stories of killings that have escaped history's pages, but no specifics.
