Today in 1890, December 29, our relatives were gunned down by hotchkiss guns trying to flee after their guns were taken away. Pregnant women were killed, children, women, and men were all killed. Young boys hiding out were coaxed out from a bush after the shooting thinking they
were safe then were killed. A mother with a baby still nursing was killed while trying to touch the flag of truce that Uŋpȟáŋ Glešká put up in camp. Over 150 died right there, estimated that around 300 died, many crawling away and dying. 25 soldiers died, most from their own
howitzer’s and guns. The army went shortly after and gathered up many of the wounded and brought them to the barracks but they were full and sat out in an uncovered wagon during a cold December night until the Episcopal Church was opened.
