    Native History: Army Generals Call on Congress to Honor Treaties

    This Date in Native History: On January 19, 1891, reports from United States Army generals advised Congress that the only way to assure peace was to honor the treaties.
    Just a month after the death of Sitting Bull and the Ghost Dance uprising in the Plains, and two weeks after the massacre at Wounded Knee, the Plains Wars were coming to a close. Three generals assessed the situation on the Plains and wrote up their recommendations to establish a lasting peace throughout the reservations of Pine Ridge, Cheyenne River, Standing Rock, and Rosebud.
