"Sitting Bull, killed by his own pistol". As Bull Head went down after being shot, he fired into Sitting Bull's side. Red Tomahawk was directly behind the group and carried a small revolver that he had taken from the Chief. With this revolver he shot Sitting Bull in the head. "The relatives of the policemen killed during the failed arrest attempt had beaten Sitting Bull's body virtually unrecognizable." (Sitting Bull - His Life and Legacy, 2009). by samanthasam

On Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota the 7th Cavalry under Colonel James Forsyth were attempting to disarm the Minneconjou Sioux who were led by Big Foot. After Sitting Bull was killed a week earlier the Indians were reluctant to hand over their weapons. The Indians suffered 146 known dead (44 women and 18 children) and 51 known wounded. The army had 25 killed and 39 wounded. No one knows who fired the first shot. The massacre ended the history of the Indian wars. by michele

The plane had been shot down in 1943 and the pilot was found strapped to the seat and almost perfectly preserved. The impact had caused him facial and lower extremity trauma but otherwise he was as he was the day he took off for the final flight. He carried a pistol and several pieces of identification. by lola
