146p. Photos. Endpaper maps. The only in-depth treatment of one of the most controversial incidents in the history of Indian-White relations, the so-called Baker Massacre, in which 173 Piegan Blackfeet, mostly women and children, were killed by troops under the command of Brevet Colonel Eugene J. Baker. The author lays the ultimate blame for the incident on the "letter and spirit" of the orders Baker received from his superior officers, including Generals Sheridan and Sherman, and also conclusively locates and reconstructs the "missing" battle site.
