In Response To: Re: Nolan's Lost Expedition of 1877* ()
Thanks again for more sources re this incident. As researchers and historians we can not extrapolate the painful.
The use of THE WORD in the title of the book, the people involved, and the time in when it occured is what piqued my interest. I have questions. Were feelings so hostile against African American soldiers guarding and protecting western settlers that in retelling this incident the author choose to use an inflammatory/derogatory word or was this Nolan's words. What happened here?
Could you give a brief synopsis of the "Lost Expedition of 1877"?
