How do you keep a people down? You 'never' let them 'know' their history.
The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after Little Big Horn, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. Read, and visit site/history, rescueatpineridge.com

Just like the Civil War, the war waged by the U.S. government on the American Indians in the Southwest -- and elsewhere -- was truly a dark time in our early history. But, today, more than a century later, we might have a chance to achieve some healing and closure, at least at Fort Bayard.
We must recognize that many atrosities were committed by both sides during this period, but all of that is history. We need to learn to live for today and the tomorrows to come. I would like to see some type of sanctuary created at Fort Bayard for the descendants of the displaced Apaches. An interpretive should be created recounting how they fought for their homeland, and many times violently resisted being being chased away or shipped to Florida and Oklahoma. At the same time, however, another interpretive should be designed to explain the mission of the Buffalo Soliders and other U.S. Calvary when they were sent here. They were soliders, all of them, and were doing what they were ordered to do. It's not like most of them wanted to be fighting for their lives in the wild frontier.
