Their plan fails and many of the Indians are killed.

When Red Cloud finds out later that the peace treaty he signed had unknown items in it, he successfully presents his case to President Grant and Donehogawa. He also wins over a crowd of New Yorkers with his impassioned speech about the false treaty.

Many of these chiefs refuse to sign the treaties due to the still raging battles going on between the U.S. and Indian Nations. Because of increasing pressure from Washington the commission forged the report and stated that there quest was successful, although knowing that because signed by lesser chiefs the few-signed treaties were actually null and void.
