The Red and the White
Andrew Graybill, associate history professor and director of Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University, talked about his book, The Red and the White: A Family Saga of the American West, in which he recalls the Second U.S. Cavalry’s attack on the Piegan tribe on January 23, 1870, dubbed the “Marias Massacre.” The cavalry had deployed to Montana to avenge the death of a fur trader, Malcolm Clarke, who married the daughter of a Piegan Blackfoot warrior, and was killed by his relatives. In his book, the author reports that Clarke’s two sons participated in the cavalry’s attack on their own relatives and that the results of the incursion were on par with the deaths at Sand Creek and Wounded Knee. Andrew Graybill spoke at Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver, Colorado. close
