Twisted Footnote to Wounded Knee: On December 29, 1890, in a ravine near Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota, the U.S. Army, supported by American Indian mercenaries, slaughtered approximately 300 Lakota men, women and children—75% of Big Foot's Lakota community. They had already surrendered when they were brought to Wounded Knee by the army. The U.S. troops turned their weapons—including 4 rapid-fire Hotchkiss guns—against clearly defeated warriors and innocent women, children and old men.
