“The Indians made such short work of killing them that no man could give any correct account of it. The first charge the Indians made never slacked up or stopped. They made a finish of it. Theindians and the whites were so mixed up you could hardly tell anything about it. “
Hump, Minneconjou, 1881
“The defeat of Custer was not a massacre. The Indians were being pursued by skilled fighters with orders to kill. For centuries they had been hounded from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again. They had their wives and little ones to protect and they were fighting for their existence.”
Buffalo Bill William Cody, 1885
