The Story Behind This Evil Place In South Dakota Will Make Your Blood Turn Cold

For decades, the story of Wounded Knee was told from the perspective of white men. The horror that occurred on December 29, 1890 was called the “Battle Of Wounded Knee,” which sounded like an armed conflict of war between U.S. troops and the Lakota people. In fact, following the massacre at this place, many U.S soldiers received Medals of Honor. As historical details have been studied, the U.S. Government now has a quite different perspective on the “Wounded Knee Massacre.” Wounded Knee is a place where many died, mostly because of cultural misunderstanding, fear and bravado.
