My ancestor is Chief John Grass Charging Bear..On the other side!LOL!>>>>>

This is funny? The man was killed far from home and butchered by people uncivilized enough to consider a dead man defeated enough. Say what you will about broken treaties, territory intrusion, etc. But speaking as a soldier myself, once the SOB is dead, he's dead. Mutilating a dead combatant's body is simply a show of no class. To flaunt an "LOL!" about it shows a complete lack of understanding of the period, the experience, and the progress we've made as a nation since then.
