Jack and Jason are taking a quiz on the battle of the Washita
fine but you better stay awake this time.
Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer attacked a peaceful village housing many men, woman and children and the tribes leader Black Kettle
before custer attacked the village he sent no recon mission or try to identify the village
many cheyenne native Americans were killed but few made it to the trees to fight back
while Black Kettle was escaping with his wife on horse back they both were shot and killed by the Washita river

this battle was hailed as an American victory and it also persuaded many tribes to stay on the reservations
