FC: The Treaties of Wounded Knee
1: Red Cloud - Wanted to sign treaty with white men. Was suspicious of what was going on with the "talking wires". Wanted treaty to give Indians something. Tried to make peace with Great Fathers counselor in Ohama. Red Cloud's War (Bozeman War or the Powder River War) was an armed conflict between the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Northern Arapaho and the United States in Wyoming and Montana territories from 1866 to 1868. | Colonel B. Henry Carrington - Marched 700 + Officers to create a blockade to prevent travel to the treaties meeting.
2: President Johnson - He played a major role in the treaties and equal rights campaign for the Indians. This is because he vetoed the Civil Rights bill. Although, it was over-turned, Indians were exempt from gaining these rights because it only promised equality for those born on the U.S. soil, besides Indians.
3: In this image you can see the people gathering for the bill. Although the bill was vetoed by the President, congress over-turned it. The Indians were furious.
4: Important Figures of Wounded Knee | Newton Edmunds - Governor of Territory of Dakota. Persuades Red Cloud to join in treaty signing. He is the prime reason the men moved u the Mississippi. | Spotted Tails Daughter - A very ill young girl who was very important to the entire story.
