The Wounded Knee Massacre

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 2:00 pm

Stephen J. Singer, Esq. takes us back to Wounded Knee, initially termed the "Battle at Wounded Knee", to justify the twenty Medals of Honor that were given to the soldiers afterwards. They had disarmed the Indians first and then proceeded to kill over 250 of them, mostly women, children and old men. This was the revenge of the Seventh Cavalry for the embarrassing defeat they had suffered at the Little Big Horn under Custer.
