Sample text

Little Rock was killed in the Washita massacre. Custer admits the maiden preferred his company to that of her own people during the four months he had her with him. This preference on her part, he said, made it unnecessary to place a guard over her movements, even when they were in the field and in close proximity to her tribe. Magpie and Little Beaver remembered Monahseetah well. She was a little older than they, in her later 'teens, a t the time she fell into Custer's hands. Magpie said the Cheyennes had little use for her after her return to the tribe when Custer went north for good because she had displayed a preference for her captor so long as he would keep her with him.

That their recollections might be more vivid and their disclosures accurate, they were taken by the writer, on more than one occasion, to the historic battlefield. There their revelations were made. - 20 - INTRODUCTION From Chief Magpie were obtained countless disclosures of heretofore unchronicled incidents connected with major events-the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864 from which Black Kettle miraculously escaped; the Washita Battle in which Black Kettle was killed and Magpie was wounded; how the Cheyennes applied the Sacred Arrow ceremony to Custer on the Sweetwater; happenings a t the Battle of the Little Big Horn, whither Magpie had accompanied a band of Cheyennes which had followed Custer for seven years to avenge the Sacred Arrows and their martyred contemporaries.

Custer. Left Hand, wrinkled Arapahoe warrior, followed Magpie a few months later. Little Beaver, another grizzled Cheyenne survivor INTRODUCTION of the Washita, joined them soon thereafter. Frank Rush, pioneer plainsman, whose efforts in behalf of the so-called "wild" Plains tribesmen, unsealed lips that had been tightly closed for more than three score years, also has gone to his last rest. He lies near the spot where General Sheridan established headquarters a t the eastern edge of the Wichitas while Custer pursued the last of the Kiowas, Cheyennes and Arapahoes into the desert wastes to the west.
