The Fourth of YOU LIE: of the Foundation of American Democracy! Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, Davie Crockett, Jim Bowie, Kit Carson, Abraham Lincoln? INDIAN KILLERS!! By Thomas Pearce

In 1992 Native people in KY and allies during the 500th anniversary of Columbus decided to correct local historic monuments to alleged heroes of colonialism in the Ohio Valley. The picture you see above is one example. It was a statue of Daniel Boone at the entrance to? “Cherokee Park”. There are 4 parks in Louisville named after the people driven from this land. Cherokee, Shawnee, Chickasaw, and Iroquois. Of course there are monuments all over this city to Confederate Generals, Indian killers, slave owners, and the like. There are absolutely none to Tecumseh, Blue Jacket, Harriet Tubman, or any native or African-Americans. A couple of streets that is it. So as I was watching Tecumseh’s vision, the PBS special last night, I was reminded of several things that deserve exploring. So once again I am going to  poke holes in “American History” and saw the legs off of statues to genocidal murderers. Sorry.

To begin with let us be clear, the colonial Americans never had any desire to live harmoniously with their Indian hosts and in fact Thomas Jefferson explicitly ordered their removal and extermination, owned slaves, and was aside from his humane policies toward his fellow colonists was a rapist, slaving, ethic cleansing murderer. So was Boone. So let us be exactly and historically honest shall we? Let us start with Daniel Boone as he was the “Indian Fighter” exemplar. Now let us remember Tecumseh was born in 1768. Boone was killing Indians and escorting colonists as Tecumseh drew his first breaths and Boone then became an elected official and presided over the ethnic cleansing of the Delaware, Shawnee, Cherokee, and all the indigenous people in the way of “progress” till his retirement. Many would say he just did what was expected of him in that time. OK? What was expected of him was that he kill Indians and escort colonists to steal lands that belonged to someone else.

Often Boone is portrayed as an affable Indian loving man who was adopted by the Shawnee. It was Shawnee custom to adopt and put to work any prisoner of war of value? Boone was of value. He was not special. Many colonials were “adopted” during the struggle and were put to work carrying and building. Boone was a mercenary.

Boone began his career as a soldier during the Anglo-Cherokee War:

The Anglo-Cherokee War was initiated in 1758 by Moytoy (Amo-adawehi) of Citico in retaliation for mistreatment of Cherokee warriors at the hands of their British and colonial allies.

The year Tecumseh was born? Boone was leading hunting and expeditionary jaunts into the Shawnee hunting grounds of KY:

On May 1, 1769, Boone began a two-year hunting expedition in Kentucky. On December 22, 1769, he and a fellow hunter were captured by a party of Shawnees, who confiscated all of their skins and told them to leave and never return. The Shawnees had not signed the Stanwix treaty, and since they regarded Kentucky as their hunting ground, they considered white hunters there to be poachers. Boone, however, continued hunting and exploring Kentucky until his return to North Carolina in 1771, and returned to hunt there again in the autumn of 1772.

In 1773 Boone after surveying the land and knowing full well he was inviting the wrath of the Indian people, Boone:

On September 25, 1773, Boone packed up his family and, with a group of about 50 emigrants, began the first attempt by British colonists to establish a settlement in Kentucky

Then:

On October 9, Boone’s eldest son James and a small group of men and boys who had left the main party to retrieve supplies were attacked by a band of Delawares, Shawnees, and Cherokees. Following the Treaty of Fort Stanwix, American Indians in the region had been debating what to do about the influx of settlers. This group had decided, in the words of historian John Mack Faragher, “to send a message of their opposition to settlement….” James Boone and William Russell’s son Henry were captured and gruesomely tortured to death. The brutality of the killings sent shock waves along the frontier, and Boone’s party abandoned its expedition.

I think you can see by the chronology here that the Indians not only did not want the settlers in the area but in fact killed Boone’s son. He didn’t get the message.

Now Tecumseh is 6 years old in 1774 and here is what his life looked like during this period:

Tecumseh was born on my birthday March 9th 1768

Between 1774 and 1782 and the Villages Tecumseh the great leader of the Shawnee Confederacy grew up in were attacked 5 times by American colonial militias. In 1779 his birthplace of Chillicothe was burned to the ground. His mother a widow as a result of his father’s death moved the family to the village of Sanding Stone. It was burned to the ground by forces under the command of George Rogers Clark (The brother of William Clark of Lewis and Clark)  in 1782. He was 14 years old.

Despite the horrendous conditions of his childhood he grew up to be a warrior statesman and when at all possible worked through diplomacy to preserve his people’s survival through peace. The government would never be happy as long as the Shawnee and Potawatomi breathed air. It was therefore the policy to ethnically cleanse them and eventually after killing most of the people were forced to march to Oklahoma. I mention these things to point out that from AIM’s perspective there was never a time they encountered a people who granted the liberty and justice for all. That time never existed.

The great purge of the Shawnee Confederacy from their lands in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and all the way to Alabama occurred before even the start of the Revolutionary war and ended October 5th 1813 when after they hunted Tecumseh like a dog to the Canadian border murdered him at the Thames river for merely wanting to live in the land of his father and mother peacefully. The same is true for many around the world today.

So returning to our hero Daniel? Yes Boone’s son was killed during what is referred to as the beginning of Lord Dunmore’s war, a war colonists still hang around the necks of the Indians as their excuse to do what they did. The fact is the residents of this land did not want Boone or the British or the colonists to live here! Tecumseh’s father was killed here.

Tecumsehs village was burned to the ground in retaliation for the attack on Boonesborough?:

The town was destroyed in 1779 by Kentucky militia in reprisal for Blackfish’s attack on Boonesborough.[6] His family fled, and moved to another nearby Kispoko village, but their new home was destroyed the following year by forces under the command of George Rogers Clark. The family moved a third time to the village of Sanding Stone. That village was attacked by Clark in November of 1782, causing them to move again to a new settlement near modern Bellefontaine, Ohio.[7]

Me  disgusted next to statue of George Rogers Clark looking over the Ohio River, the man who burned Tecumseh’s young life to the ground.


You will notice here the introduction into Tecumseh’s life another who is portrayed in American history as friend to the Indian. George Rogers Clark. Who in fact made his stock in trade burning Indian villages to the ground. Yet KY and US historians place wonderful statues all over the state of Boone, Merriwether Lewis, William Clark. and George Rogers Clark as benign explorers in harmony with the land with their trusty Indian Guides.

It is all bullshit. They were occupiers, murderers and thieves. They were no more adopted by the Shawnee than you would adopt a virus. So let us continue:

Following Dunmore’s War, Richard Henderson, a prominent judge from North Carolina, hired Boone to travel to the Cherokee towns in present North Carolina and Tennessee and inform them of an upcoming meeting. In the 1775 treaty, Henderson purchased the Cherokee claim to Kentucky in order to establish a colony called Transylvania. Afterwards, Henderson hired Boone to blaze what became known as the Wilderness Road, which went through the Cumberland Gap and into central Kentucky. Along with a party of about thirty workers, Boone marked a path to the Kentucky River, where he founded Boonesborough. Other settlements, notably Harrodsburg, were also established at this time. Despite occasional Indian attacks, Boone returned to the Clinch Valley and brought his family and other settlers to Boonesborough on September 8, 1775.[18]

Anyone else see a problem here? Truly let us look at the Trajectory of Boone’s life and please tell me what you see? Let us look at this piece of the puzzle:

“In the 1775 treaty, Henderson purchased the Cherokee claim to Kentucky.”

The Cherokee under duress signed a treaty granting these colonists “Kentucky” but all historical fact shows that Boone and Henderson knew from their former conflicts with the Shawnee that the Cherokee under duress were signing a treaty they had no right to sign. The Cherokees no more owned Kentucky than Boone did. They were merely looking to get the Cherokee who had been roundly murdered to agree to not get involved with the fighting.

Much the way Israel and the US have used Egypt as a foil against their neighbors for 30 years.

Let us continue. Now Boone was so determined to continue his murderous way of life that he lost his son James, his son Israel was killed in the battle of the Blue Licks, a battle in which as my family tells it a relative of mine Hugh McGary (my Grandfather’s side) who was a double agent for the Shawnee goaded Boone’s forces to attack into an ambush that had been laid by the Shawnee. Argument goes on to this day about whether McGary was a fool or double agent. The end of it was that McGary led them across the river and Boone remarked as they crossed “We are all slaughtered men!”.

Israel Boone died in the attack, McGary survived and was hated by Boone after.

Boone’s daughter was also abducted and became the basis for Fennimore Cooper’s Last of the Mohicans (racist film):

On July 14, 1776, Boone’s daughter Jemima and two other teenage girls were captured outside Boonesborough by an Indian war party, who carried the girls north towards the Shawnee towns in the Ohio country. Boone and a group of men from Boonesborough followed in pursuit, finally catching up with them two days later. Boone and his men ambushed the Indians while they were stopped for a meal, rescuing the girls and driving off their captors. The incident became the most celebrated event of Boone’s life. James Fenimore Cooper created a fictionalized version of the episode in his classic book The Last of the Mohicans

How this story became romanticized as a story about two Indians and their trusted white son rescuing the pure white girl from the “Savage” Indians? Give me a break!

Am I the only one who sees the white washing of Boone’s life?

What we have here is a man who despite numerous family killed as a result of his refusal to turn back when Indians most assuredly sent very strong message to them. “WE WANT YOU TO LEAVE!”

During this time Tecumseh’s people began to succumb to diseases brought into their midst by the settlers, and Tecumseh grew up watching his people, family, and friends dying all around him. It was under this sky that Tecumseh organized a confederacy of resistance to Boone, Clark, and the colonists!

Now let us look at the Father of American Democracy and his role in all this mayhem?  Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) and even his buddies Franklin and others. Notice the years of his life and then look at Tecumseh’s 1768-1813. Daniel Boone (October 22, 1734 – September 26, 1820)? Who lived a short life of murder and terror and who lived a full life of honor?

Thomas Jefferson on the First Nations people:

Early in his first term as President, Thomas Jefferson made a secret agreement with Georgia in which he indicated that the United States would remove all Indians from the state. With growing anti-Indian sentiments in the United States, Jefferson began to formulate a plan to remove all Indians from the East. The problem, of course, was what to do with them when they were removed. Part of the problem was solved with the purchase of the Louisiana Territory as this provided a place for the displaced Indians. In 1803 he formally proposed that all Indians in the United States be removed to west of the Mississippi. While a bill to this effect passed the Senate, it failed to gain the support of the House.

In 1803 Jefferson wrote this insidious passage:

“When they withdraw themselves to the culture of a small piece of land, they will perceive how useless to them are their extensive forests, and will be willing to pare them off from time to time in exchange for necessaries for their farms and families. To promote this disposition to exchange lands, which they have to spare and we want, for necessaries, which we have to spare and they want, we shall push our trading uses, and be glad to see the good and influential individuals among them run in debt, because we observe that when these debts get beyond what the individuals can pay, they become willing to lop them off by a cession of lands. At our trading houses, too, we mean to sell so low as merely to repay us cost and charges, so as neither to lessen or enlarge our capital. This is what private traders cannot do, for they must gain; they will consequently retire from the competition, and we shall thus get clear of this pest without giving offence or umbrage to the Indians. In this way our settlements will gradually circumscribe and approach the Indians, and they will in time either incorporate with us a citizens or the United States, or remove beyond the Mississippi. The former is certainly the termination of their history most happy for themselves; but, in the whole course of this, it is essential to cultivate their love. As to their fear, we presume that our strength and their weakness is now so visible that they must see we have only to shut our hand to crush them, and that all our liberalities to them proceed from motives of pure humanity only. Should any tribe be foolhardy enough to take up the hatchet at any time, the seizing the whole country of that tribe, and driving them across the Mississippi, as the only condition of peace, would be an example to others, and a furtherance of our final consolidation”.

Jefferson’s goals were? TO move every Indian West of the Mississippi. Nice flowery words that add up to join or die!!

More? It is important to me at this point to blow a whole in the idea of Jefferson as being anti-slavery:

In Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson wrote that blacks were inferior to whites “in the endowments both of body and mind.”[53] He believed they were inferior to whites in reasoning, mathematical comprehension, and imagination. Jefferson claimed these “differences” were “fixed in nature” and was not dependent on their freedom or education.[54] One possibility Jefferson discussed was that blacks were a “separate species located beneath humans, but above orang-ootans.” These alleged “differences” of the “innate inferiority of Blacks compared to Whites”, was part of his rationalization for enslaving them, and Magnis says of his writings: “This is the essence of racial bias”.

So where are these democracy loving founding fathers we have heard about? IT IS ALL A LIE!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS ABOUT DEMOCRACY FOR LANDING OWNING WHITE MALES.

We must be clear that by 1830 when Jackson passed the Indian Removal Act, Jefferson had plowed the way and was the father of the genocide of the Indian people.

Indian Removal Act:

The Indian Removal Act, part of an American government policy known as Indian removal, was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson on May 26, 1830.[1]

President Andrew Jackson called for an Indian Removal Act in his 1829 speech on the issue.

The Removal Act was strongly supported in the South, where states were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. In particular, Georgia, the largest state at that time, was involved in a contentious jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokee nation. President Jackson hoped removal would resolve the Georgia crisis. The Indian Removal Act was also very controversial. While Native American removal was, in theory, supposed to be voluntary, in practice great pressure was put on Native American leaders to sign removal treaties. Most observers, whether they were in favor of the Indian removal policy or not, realized that the passage of the act meant the inevitable removal of most Indians from the states.

Back to Jefferson:

As Jefferson put it in a letter to Alexander von Humboldt in 1813:

“You know, my friend, the benevolent plan we were pursuing here for the happiness of the aboriginal inhabitants in our vicinities. We spared nothing to keep them at peace with one another. To teach them agriculture and the rudiments of the most necessary arts, and to encourage industry by establishing among them separate property. In this way they would have been enabled to subsist and multiply on a moderate scale of landed possession. They would have mixed their blood with ours, and been amalgamated and identified with us within no distant period of time. On the commencement of our present war, we pressed on them the observance of peace and neutrality, but the interested and unprincipled policy of England has defeated all our labors for the salvation of these unfortunate people. They have seduced the greater part of the tribes within our neighborhood, to take up the hatchet against us, and the cruel massacres they have committed on the women and children of our frontiers taken by surprise, will oblige us now to pursue them to extermination, or drive them to new seats beyond our reach.”

Here Jefferson is not getting it! The Shawnee and First nations unified with the British not because they were loving of the British anymore than the colonials but because unity with the British coalition was the only possible way they could stave off Jefferson’s plan to “assimilate through agriculture and the rudiments of the most necessary arts, and to encourage industry by establishing among them separate property.”
The Indians did not want to hold the land separately! They did not want to join in the destruction of what Jefferson termed as their “vast and useless” forests. They wanted to be at home in the land of the land of their father and mother. They wanted to live in a land of no want. They wanted to live in their homes.
Jefferson was content in having them lose their self-sufficiency and to become beholden to his agricultural construction of his free white states. He knew from the beginning though that his overarching goal was to push them out!
There were many who played the role of Indian Killer and security for the “pioneer, settlers” and the proof of their goals was as plain as day in the Lewis and Clark expedition that went all the way to Washington state as they mapped out their plans to once pushing the Indians past the Mississippi? Would then move to push the Indian People into the sea.
Proof? In 1803 Jefferson engineered the Louisiana Purchase from France that expanded US holdings to include Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, parts of Texas,Arkansas,  and Louisiana. So as he was making the plan to push the Indians West of the Mississippi? He was buying European claim to that land and planning to push the Indian off the lands he was pushing them to?
Tecumseh is the proof solid of Indian resistance and refusal to accept any of the above.
I often argue with a few friends regularly about this whole notion of America as the birth place of freedom but it was Jefferson who while visiting France was forced to free his slaves? Flying in the face of this false legacy of freedom outside slavery?
The Indian people lived in Freedom with no help from Jefferson for tens of thousands of years. In fact the United States constitution was borrowed in part from the Iroquois confederacy!:
In 2004 the U.S. Government acknowledged the influence of the Iroquois Constitution on the U.S. Framers.<14> The Smithsonian also noted the similarities between the two documents, as well as the differences. One significant difference noted was the inclusion of women in the Iroquois Constitution, one group among many that the framers of the U.S. Constitution did not include. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iroquois_Confederacy#Examp… Washington — Benjamin Franklin, one of the original architects of the United States government, introduced as a model for the country’s framework document the constitution of the Iroquois Nation, according to a Smithsonian Institution specialist of American Indian history.The Iroquois, a North American Indian confederacy of several tribes, allied with some of the first European settlers of what later became the United States.The Iroquois’ detailed constitution — called the Great Law of Peace — guaranteed freedom of religion and expression and other rights later embraced in the U.S. Constitution, said Jaime Hill, co-editor of “American Indian,” a new Smithsonian magazine about the past, present and future of indigenous peoples from throughout the Western Hemisphere.

snip:
However, the Iroquois constitution differed from the later U.S. document in one important way — it specifically mentioned women, said Knapp. Many Indian nations were matriarchal with women nominating legislators, she added.

http://usinfo.state.gov/scv/Archive/2005/May/17-246412….


In other words they didn’t even write their constitution! They stole most of that from Indians as well. And it goes on.
After the Indians East of the Mississippi were pushed to the west there were new Tecumseh’s, Crazy Horse, Geronimo, Chief Joseph and others who tried to mount a confederacy of unity against each consecutive push only to be decimated at the hands of this socalled Democracy! I will continue on this later but please can we just be honest?
There was never any freedom or respect for personal property by this government. It has all been destruction, theft by murder and rape, ethnic genocide, and slavery. America is truly the “Bright and Shining Lie”. To the victors go the spoils? Well there is a new shift coming in this world and I proclaim now as I always have, this illegitimate settler state will not stand the test of time. Eventually the people of the Western Hemisphere will rise from the ashes and come home!!
The Indian Killers interesting how many came from KY or had Virginia, Kentucky or Tennessee  roots and how interesting the colonialists used these Indian Fighters to push all the way to Texas and Beyond:

Davie Crockett (East Tennessee): Although he did oppose Jackson’s Indian Removal Act he was much more progressive in ways to Boone, he cut his teeth in the Creek war,On September 24, 1813, Crockett joined the Second Regiment of Tennessee Volunteer Mounted Riflemen for an initial term of sixty days and served under Colonel John Coffee in the Creek War, marching south into present day Alabama and taking an active part in the fighting. Made a scout because of his abilities as a hunter, trapper, and woodsman, Crockett is known to supposedly have supported the starving troops during the time of the Creek War with the game he hunted. He was eventually discharged from service on March 27, 1814. Crockett was elected Lieutenant Colonel of the Fifty-seventh Regiment of Tennessee Militia
on March 27, 1818.
Of course he died helping colonialists steal Mexico at the Alamo
Colonel James Bowie (Logan County KY): Just one example of his exploitive behavior? Shortly after his marriage Bowie became fascinated with the story of the “lost” Los Almagres Mine, said to be west of San Antonio near the ruin of Santa Cruz de San Sabá Mission.[30] The mine had been operated by local Indians before being seized by the Spanish. After Mexico won independence from Spain, government interest in the mines waned. A number of hostile Indian tribes roamed the area, including ComancheLipan Apache, and Karankawa, and without government troops to keep the tribes at bay, mining ceased. It was believed that after the Mexican citizens left the area, the Lipan Apaches took over the mines.[56]
After obtaining permission from the Mexican government to mount an expedition into Indian territory to search for the legendary silver mine, Bowie, his brother Rezin, and nine others set out for San Saba on November 2, 1831. Six miles (10 km) from their goal, the group stopped to negotiate with a large Indian raiding party following them. The attempts at parley failed and Bowie and his group fought for their lives for the next 13 hours. When the Indians finally retreated, Bowie reportedly had lost only one man, while over 40 Indians had been killed and 30 were wounded.[ Perished at the Alamo along with a long list of famous Indian killers who were speculating of land they would steal from Mexico.Kit Carson (born Madison County KY:
His mission was to gather the Navajo together and move them to Fort Sumner on the Bosque Redondo Reservation. When the Indians refused to move and hid in the Canyon de Chelly, he began a campaign of economic warfare, destroying crops, livestock and villages. By destroying their food supplies, eventually he convinced the Navajos that going to the reservation was the only way to survive. By 1864, about 8000 Navajo had surrendered to the U.S. Army, while another 8000 hid in the back country. Kit Carson finally went home to his family. After the Civil War, Carson moved to Colorado, where he died.

General William Worth (New York):
General in Mexican American War
During the war he served as an aide to (then brigadier general) Winfield Scott, and developed a friendship with him. Worth later named his son Winfield Scott Worth. He distinguished himself at the battles of Chippewa and Lundy’s Lane during the Niagara campaign. In the latter battle, he was seriously wounded by grapeshot in the thigh. He was not expected to survive, but after a year’s confinement he emerged with the breveted rank of Major—though he would remain lame for the rest of his life. After the war he was Commandant of Cadets at West Point and would rise to the rank of Colonel in 1838 when he was put in command of the newly created Eighth Infantry Regiment. Using his own tactics he successfully prosecuted the Second Seminole War in Florida and was made a brevet brigadier general in 1842. Eventually, he convinced Secretary of War John C. Spencer to allow the remaining Indians in the territory to confine themselves to the region south of Peace Creek, and declared an official end to the war in August of that year
William Clark (of Lewis and Clark) Caroline County Virginia: Contrary to all the wonderful crap they try to sell us about how William Clark was simply a peaceful explorer? His career before his expedition was notable for fighting Indians.Although the Revolutionary War was over, Kentuckians continued to fight the Northwest Indian War with American Indians north of the Ohio River. In 1789, nineteen year-old William Clark began his military career by joining a volunteer militia force under Major John Hardin.[11] Clark kept a detailed journal of the expedition, the beginning of a lifelong practice. The targets of Hardin’s expedition were Wea Indians on the Wabash River who had been raiding settlements in Kentucky. The undisciplined Kentucky militia attacked a peaceful Shawnee hunting camp, where they killed a total of eight men, women, and children.[12]

In 1790, Clark was commissioned by General Arthur St. Clair, governor of the Northwest Territory, as a captain in the Clarksville, Indiana militia. The nature of his services that year are unclear; one older source says that he was sent on a mission to the Creek and Cherokee Indians.[13] He may have visited New Orleans at that time. His travels prevented him from participating in General Josiah Harmar‘s disastrous campaign into the Northwest Territory that year.[14]

In 1791, Clark served as an ensign and acting lieutenant with expeditions under generals Charles Scott and James Wilkinson.[15] Clark enlisted in the Legion of the United States and was commissioned as a Lieutenant on March 6, 1792 under Anthony Wayne. On September 4, 1792 he was assigned to the 4th Sub-Legion. He was involved in several skirmishes with Indians during the continuing Northwest Indian War.[13] At the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794, Clark commanded a company of riflemen who drove back the enemy on the left flank, killing a number of Indians and Canadians. This decisive US victory brought the Northwest Indian War to an end. In 1795, Clark was dispatched on a mission to New Madrid, Missouri. Clark also served as an adjutant and quartermaster while in the militia.[15]

George Rogers Clark (brother of William) Born Charlottesville Virginia, founder of Louisville KY died there:

As I have pointed out in the early parts of this document, George Rogers Clark commanded forces that routinely burned Shawnee villages to the ground.

The tribes living in the Ohio country had not been party to the treaty signed with the Cherokee, which ceded the Kentucky hunting grounds to Britain for settlement. They attacked the European-American settlers to try to push them out of the area, conflicts that eventually culminated in Lord Dunmore’s War. Clark served in the war as a captain in the Virginia militia.[8]

As early as 1779 he was called the Conqueror of the Northwest by George Mason.

He and his brother were legend for stealing Indian Land.


Abraham Lincoln (Hardin County KY): Aside from freeing the slaves?

Due to the demands of the American Civil War, the region’s representatives had to repeatedly appeal for aid before Pres. Abraham Lincoln appointed Gen. John Pope to quell the violence. He led troops from the 3rd Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment and 4th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Minnesota Gov. Alexander Ramsey also enlisted the help of Col. Henry Hastings Sibley(the previous governor) to aid in the effort.

After the arrival of a larger army force, the final large-scale fighting took place at the Battle of Wood Lake on September 23, 1862. According to the official report of Lt. Col. William R. Marshall of the7th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment, elements of the 7th Minnesota and the 6th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment (and a six-pounder cannon) were deployed equally in dugouts and in a skirmish line. After brief fighting, the forces in the skirmish line charged against the Dakota (then in a ravine) and defeated them overwhelmingly.

Lincoln signed the death warrants of 38 Lakota men:

The Army executed the 38 remaining prisoners by hanging on December 26, 1862, in Mankato, Minnesota. It remains the largest mass execution in American history. At least two Sioux leaders, Little Six and Medicine Bottle, escaped to Canada. They were captured, drugged and returned to the United States. They were hanged at Fort Snelling in 1865

Lincoln’s family was among the first of settlers in what is now Jefferson County KY where his grandfather was killed in battle with the Shawnee.

I could go on and on about the lies we have been told about this American Democracy. I will continue. Let it be known that this country was never fair, democratic, or respectful of any peoples from the beginning. This is occupied territory and it is a settler state!
