" An army soldier exclaimed those words upon discovering the grim aftermath of an hour long battle between 80 US soldiers and 2000 Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapahoe Indians. He wasn't exaggerating. When Brevet-Colonel William Fetterman led his men into an Indian ambush on the Bozeman Road, he led every single one of then--and himself--to their deaths. It was only the second occurence of complete annihilation in US history."
