| Site of the last official
battle in the Indians wars, Wounded Knee Creek was a convenient place
for the Seventh Cavalry to disarm Big
Foot's band during the Lakota Ghost Dance "uprising" in 1890.
But then a shot rang out, and some 300 Lakota were gunned down. Eighteen
members of the Seventh Cavalry, avenged for its loss at the Little
Bighorn, received the Medal of Honor.
