10: Important Passages | "Are not women and children more timid then men? The Cheyenne warriors are not afraid but have you ever heard of Sand Creek? Your soldiers look just like those who butchered the women and children there" Roman Nose This quote is a letter from Roman Nose to General Handcock. He's stating how the Cheyenne Indians are much more different than the white settlers. White settlers will do anything to get what they want and use any means necessary.

11: "As soon as the Sioux hunters alerted their people, Pawnee killer sent runners to the Cheyenne camp to ask them to join the attack on the white scouts" General Sheridan authorized men called Forsyth's scouts to search and eliminate Indian camps. Pawnee Killer got word of this and sent some of his men to the Cheyenne camp where Tall Bull and White Horse resided. They agreed on this joint attack and sent out criers (men who alert the warriors) through out the camp to get ready for battle.

12: "Late in the autumn of 1866, Roman Nose and a party of warriors visited Fort Wallace and notified the overland stage companies agent that if he did not stop running coaches through their country in 15 days, the Indians will begin attacking them" Roman Nose and the rest of the Cheyenne Indians wanted to stop that new stage coaching area. They were driving through their best buffalo range and were scaring off their buffalo. Roman Nose only gave them a warning so far, but he will keep his word if they don't stop driving through that area.
