New forensic techniques shed light on the death of the legendary Sioux leader.
His name was Tasunka Witko, but he is better known as Crazy Horse. The young, mystical leader personified Native-American resistance to America's westward advance. And his victory at the Little Big Horn made him the most famous and feared Indian warrior of all.
But as INVESTIGATING HISTORY® details, Crazy Horse was a controversial figure among his own people. And over a century after his death, many questions about his fate remain unanswered. Was there a military conspiracy led by General Sheridan (Custer's mentor) and General Crook? Did Red Cloud and other chiefs spread rumors designed to eliminate a threat to their rule? And what about Frank Grouard, the army interpreter who mistranslated Crazy Horse? Drawing on contemporary accounts and recent discoveries, WHO KILLED CRAZY HORSE? adds a new chapter to one of the West's great stories.
