The Wounded Knee Massacre or the Battle of the Wounded Knee was the last armed conflict between the Great Sioux Nation and the United States of America. It occurred at Wounded Knee, South Dakota on December 29, 1890. The United States Army used Hotchkiss cannons while Sioux warriors were poorly unarmed. Hundreds of woman children and old men died in a bloody massacre spoken of by Black Elk and President Harrison in the Wounded Knee Massacre document. Both men had very different accounts of what occurred and who was at fault as well as visions of the future of the Sioux Native American Tribe. Entry 2: The Battle of the Little Bighorn
