Massacre at Wounded Knee
Today is the anniversary of the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. There is a museum commemorating the event. You can read an eyewitness account here. Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown is a book about the tragedy that is also available in an edited edition intended for children, which I used to have but can no longer locate. The book has recently been adapted for HBO.
