I told the Colonel that he was a liar and had no honor, I asked him if he was ever going to send me to India and before I knew it his sword came out of his scabbard like a lightning bolt. I would have been dead if Bukong didn’t overhear and step right in with his cane and start beating me. I was certain, with tears rushing down my cheeks and pain going throughout my body, that I was a dead man. Thankfully Sonji pulled the crazy man off of me. It took me three days to recover and when I was well enough they forced me to beg for forgiveness which I did for a good several minutes.
The colonization of America began with the landing of Christopher Columbus in 1492. The Europeans that arrived in the America 's brought with them hope and thoughts for a new beginning in life, the dream of new beginnings for home and family however, the unexpected arose as they also brought diseases that were not indigenous to the native tribes already settled on the North American Continent. These diseases decimated the native population as well as the European settlers that landed in 1492.

It has been a long 4 months since blood has been shed in the, already finished, Battle of Gettysburg. The battle lasted three long, hellish days, of blood, sickness, amputated limbs, death and everything else that comes along with war. For all that I know, General Lee is completely insane to have tried to invade the North; why would he do that? Already contradicting what I have previously said, insanity is not really the word; overconfidence would be it. Seeing as though he came from a series of wins, it is not a surprise that General Lee would become overconfident, but with overconfidence comes the sense that victory is guaranteed; which is not.
The Wild West really was as violent as they said .cattle, cowboys and the Great Plains. But Hollywood did not define it as it really was back in the 1800s… it was only their stories.

The well-known treaty was the treaty of Fort Laramie which was to bring peace with the europeans and the sioux to settle by the black hills, but a miner found gold traces in the black hills and the U.S. broke the treaty.
