Summary
  • "American Carnage--the first comprehensive account of Wounded Knee to appear in more than fifty years--explores the complex events preceding the tragedy, the killings, and their troubled legacy"--
  • "This is an exhaustively researched narrative of the December 29, 1890, Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Reservation where the surrender of the Miniconjou Sioux leader, Spotted Elk (or Big Foot) and his band led to the killing and massacre of at least 200 of his people, along with more than two-dozen troops of the 7th Cavalry and other units. Using newly discovered and under-used sources, Greene develops the story from both Indian and white perspectives. He addresses such controversial topics as whether the events constituted a battle or a massacre, the disputed number of dead, and the Indians' decades-long fight for proper federal recognition. This will become the definitive study of what is commonly, and Greene argues mistakenly, considered the last Indian battle of the American frontier"--
