Example text

A Brulé chief was shot and killed as he tried to keep the situation from escalating, and a riot broke out. The Lakota surrounded and killed all of Grattan’s greatly outnumbered men. S. government condemned Grattan’s provocative actions. Military officers, however, did not want the Grattan Fight to go unpunished for fear it would send the wrong message to the Lakota. In the summer of 1855, Indian agent Thomas Twiss ordered all Native Americans to stay south of the Platte River, where he promised they would be protected and receive the goods guaranteed by the 1851 treaty.

Fetterman, however, had no regard for the fighting abilities of Native Americans. He supposedly said that with 80 men, he could march through the entire Lakota nation. Unlike Carrington, Fetterman had extensive combat experience during the Civil War, but he had no experience fighting Native Americans. As winter closed in, the Lakota, Cheyenne, and some Arapaho, led by Hump, worked out a plan. They decided to try the old trick of using decoys to lure the soldiers into a great ambush. The group even rehearsed the ambush so that the young warriors would not spring the trap prematurely.

On December 21, 1866, Fetterman demanded that Carrington allow him to lead some soldiers to defend woodcutters who were being harassed by a few Lakota.
