Andy Jackson, Custer, Sheridan, and Sherman all failed. They boasted they would exterminate all Indians, and that the only good Indian was a dead Indian. Sheridan and Sherman used the same scorched earth policy during the Indian wars that they did during the Civil War, not caring that they killed civilians without mercy.
It may be that the various prophecies made by Wovoka, Black Elk, Lame Deer, and Seattle may come to pass-that the White Man will leave because he has not learned to live as part of the land. We certainly have messed up the place in the past 200 years…
