Sample text

The employees were aroused by the clamor made by Walters. Appleton lived a few hours, dying in the early morning. A search for the guard discovered him sitting on a chair sound asleep in a house just outside the stockade. His name was Paddy Nolan. His negligence had resulted in the tragedy. He broke down and after two days of mental anguish and crying quit his work and the place. An Indian was sent to Spotted Tail to notify the agent, and he arrived at Red Cloud just at night of the same day. This occurred in the winter of 1873–4.

Garnett says now that he is not sure that Red Cloud went to the Indian 14              Territory; but the rest of the principal chiefs went. When Garnett was getting scouts for Crook at this period, it was the first enlistment of Sioux scouts. Crook’s army, after arriving at Fort Robinson, kept sifting off to Fort Laramie to fit up. These scouts also went to Laramie in company with the 4th Cavalry and other soldiers. These separate scouts were each in command of a sergeant. Three Bears was the sergeant in command of the Sioux and Sharp Nose was the sergeant in command of the Arapahos; but when they were all out together the Arapahos voluntarily recognized and acknowledged Three Bears as the ranking officer.

The effect of Crook’s act was simply to set up another with whom the government would hold official intercourse and whom it must perforce thereafter hold responsible as the recognized head of the tribe for the good behavior of its members. If so disposed to do, Red Cloud was now freer than ever to foment trouble; for, from the new position of the government authorities, he could be regarded only as a private person who might be put into the guard house temporarily by arbitrary authority, or ‘‘accidentally’’ killed or summarily hung according to the nature of the times or the convenience of the surroundings.
