wow I would really like to hear any follow ups on this story... it seems that a while back there was some documentary that stated that many of Custer soldiers ran away from the fight by evidences of where they firearms were found, of course Hollywoods version is really a farce.. and should not believed

I love to rattle the bones and have dug up many interesting facts about my family tree and all its many branches

First of all:

Given the era, of course whatever came out of Hollywood at the time was meant to boost the personae of the performers, etc., i. e., so the casting of Errol Flynn--as Custer--lol-- was a no brainer/the pic melodrama as a given, etc.

It was meant for mass (white public) consumption...

It was the light stuff...

So do tell me about the heavy drama/and the real story!

Thanks!

FYI...

heavy drama? that is not something you will ever get in past history books, movies etc.

however somewhere in the back of one of my computer chips of a brain I seem to have heard an account from the winning side of that battle, one that families handed down

I will try and follow thru on looking that up again...

Good afternoon,  indian sis...

And,  it is good that we can reexamine the facts,  candidly/honestly/fairly/objectively...

But,  let us also remember,  and not that far back,  when those of us labelled 'minorities'  weren't all that proud of who we were or were about,  more like--regressed and retreated back to,   i. e.,   when the white powers that be reacted to what when on/down/etc.,   by the way of resistance etc.,  before and after the events of the Battle of the Greasy Grass had more or less been forgotten by most people,   though not all people...

Such as that so called 'battle'  at wounded knee (not the standoff which came long after it during our lifetimes)?

It was nothing of the sort!

Damn white congressmen added insult to injury,  by awarding those 'heroes'  (butchers) with congressional medals of honor!!

Obviously something else today's congress should take back!!!

Now flashforward and what do today's younger (or not so younger) generations remember about AIM's stands either?

So some disappointment/no 'suprise'  about 'skins' and being down with 'the rez'...

Full circle--again--sis-!

Some things others just don't forget:

Some things we better damn sure remember!

Another FYI for public consumption by all of my and our relations...

Take care...

Peace...
