I am humbled.... and very deeply saddened by this story, (as there are many other stories to share). The realization of what man's capability and cruelty to our Native Tribes, their history, and in what they had to endure years ago, and still do... to this very day is heart-wrenching.

No wards can bring them back, sadly, but actions (memorials) keeps history alive by telling and sharing the stark, brutal, inhumane treatment of our Native peoples. Soule’s and Cramer’s acts of courage to stand and resist the orders is commendable. Shame there weren't others who would defy the orders. Oh! the horror and cruelty!

Thank you, Joanne (furies) for sharing this story.

We must remember our horrific treatment of the First Nations peoples. Also, the heroism and humanity of Captain Soule and Lieutenant Cramer should be much more well-known.

A remarkable story.   One that will never be forgotten.
I was not aware of these two heroes, Captain Soule and  Lt. Cramer. Bless them for rejecting the violence and standing up for the people. 
Thanks Joanne

Your history in the US, almost identical to ours in Australia, so called 'justified' slaughter & genocide of our First Nations! 😥

And in true American style, the Hero who testified against the powers that be, was gunned down....

Thank you for this Joanne, i didn't know.
