The anniversary of mary sue death but she isn't the only woman that haunts the grounds anna's counterpart is far more malevolent than the morning girl could ever be now back to the story. The white house we know today is the result of over two hundred years of building and rebuilding to fit both the needs of the president and the country. The white house was designed by irish architect. James hogan mixing colonial neoclassical and renaissance styles. Thomas jefferson designed some of his own architectural improvements when he moved in eighteen. One but much of the building was lost during the burning of washington by the british during the war of eighteen twelve. The building wasn't restored until eighteen seventeen and was renovated again. In the early twentieth century which included an expansion of the west wing and the construction of the oval office. the whole building had to be restored. During the truman administration as the brick and sandstone structure was danger of collapsing. It was first lady. Jackie kennedy who gave the white house interiors their iconic look picking an era for major room in the building including federal french empire and victorian later renovations include a bowling alley in the basement added by richard nixon and a set of solar water heating panels which were installed by the carter administration before being removed by ronald reagan presidents george w bush and barack obama would later restore and expand the solar energy elements of the building. The renovation process is not without its architectural losses. One of the most tragic is the white house conservatory which was open to the public and supplied all the flowers for events at the residence. It was ultimately converted to office space to expand the west wing. But perhaps it's for the past because more than bees seemed to buzz between the rows of fully ch- nathan loved working at the white house. It made him feel like he was an integral part of the structure that kept the nation running even if his job was just patrolling at night after a string of assassinated precedence security was even more important and with the twentieth century about to dawn. Change was closer than ever. Nathan took his duties very seriously but he also had a secret hidden within the walls at the palatial building. He had a friend that no one knew She had never told him her name. Or even how. She came to stay at the white house but the to head past many a moonlit night together in the conservatory in between his rounds each time they met she was dressed in clothes. That must have been passed down from a relative. She was far too young to be wearing the stiff hoop skirts. That had been style nearly a century earlier but she liked to stay in around in them like a tornado. Come to life. Her hair shone as if there was a lantern hanging behind her head casting a celestial glow daughter and your voice was soft and sweet lavender. Honey he could find himself drowning it. If he wasn't careful she had approached him on one of his first watches. He tried to treat her like any unaccounted for guests on the grounds but she had been kind him innocent and generous in every way with her. He wasn't an overlooked part of the environment. He was a person with his own point of view and she wanted to hear it after that it had been hard to ask for anything. She was always more interested in him than anything else. Nathan had always felt that he was incredibly ordinary but this nameless woman devoured his stories with laughs and gasps that made him feel like a hero in his own life his beloved dog. Its first school the day. He got the job. In the nation's capital they were all triumphs of great interest. He worried at first that she was teasing him but she listened with such earnestness but he found himself incapable of doubting her. He took his obligation seriously but he relished his time with her sometimes he would cut cars so we could spend more time with her but she was so patient. Twenty astor to wait. Nathan finishes preliminary rounds and headed for the conservatory. The moon cast a soft glow through the center windows while the rest of the glass room remained shrouded in mystery. Tall plants loomed menacingly overhead and had on several occasions snagged him as he moved through the space but his friend had a way of us waging all his fears usually she was already there to greet him at the entrance tonight however she appeared to be missing. Nathan wasn't too concerned. The white house was large and the conservatory was made up of winding connected enclosures. She could be just around the next bet and rather than wait for her to appear. He decided to walk the length of the conservatory. As his lantern swung back and forth in his hand. The shadows change position making. It appear that the.

"Command Sheridan Sherman and Sheridan work for grant, visa-free war leaders who won the civil war. They remain close comrades. But they're in command of what becomes the American Indian wars. And the Fetterman massacre is when these uninformed American cavalryman and infantrymen believe they can build forts in sight of about fifteen hundred two thousand Indians commanded by red cloud. It's foolishness the Indians attack using decoys at the American army falls for Peter. They leave Fetterman with one hundred and sixty five arrows into him after they've killed him. Why what did that mean to them? The the the the whites both civilian and the military never for the most part never fully understood the the music extreme utilization of dead by virtually every Indian tribe in the west they look they saw it as a indication savagery. I I can't even begin to I could. But I will refrain the book is explicit. But the method that the Indians youth and mutilation of the dead are extreme as your imagination can imagine. And of course, it the I found that repellent but the plains Indians. Particularly the northern plains Indians did not torture denied mutilate. Live enemy. You say would not capture a soldier and then mutilate 'em to mediation, always occurred after death. And in fact, it was a hour practice. Look the coach of for instance, if they if they encountered it when we were soldiers in the course of the fight was settlement if they had found a handful of soldiers badly wounded mortally wounded, whatever they would dispatch them quickly with a war club one blow to the head and kill them. And then the mutilation began the purpose of mutilation was it was a religious at the Indians believed that the souls of their enemies would follow them into the afterlife. And that. In whatever condition. They were. Upon death and immediately after death. So the Indians would for instance, in some of the the the less revolting to the whites at least practices were to say slash the scene. Us loss was in their legs and their arms to poke their is out. So that when their enemies filed them to the afterlife, they would be lame. They would not be able to pose a threat to Indians who were enjoying attorney. And that was that was the purpose of mutilation, the dead. It was not an act of of close savage unquote with no purpose except Shiva retali- as most whites interpreted to be it was in the Indians way of thinking in terms of their religion, a quite rational thing to do. And I'm going to stay with the logic. And the reason because there are instances Peter's book is sweeping you understand there's enormous amount of history detail here. A while go to a conversation once between Roman nose. Knows romano's preach approaches, the General John Winfield Scott Hancock hero. The civil war who is cruel and ignorant and believes that he can intimidate the Indians from knows approaches him and for a parley, and which if it ends badly Roman is ready to kill his enemy, and he says to the general we we don't want war. If we did we would not come close to your big guns, very sensible. Peter. Did they not believe the Indians when they told them the truth? Did they not did did Winfield? Scott Hancock who is one of many generals. Who doesn't listen did? They not believe the Indians were telling them the truth. Hancock was one of the one of the more pathetic cases. He was indeed a true civil war hero. And in the eyes of many he was equal to if not superior to Sheridan in terms of is is that is the hero of the civil war. If you may recall it subsequently, he ran for president on the democratic ticket was narrowly defeated. So he was quite an he was a national hero. And he was a tremendous tremendous competent general civil war. And I am particular struck by he's a Regis not only ignorance by his unwillingness to take the time to learn the first thing about the Indians when he came west and his his belief that he could bluster and intimidate his way through any situation. And he he he was surrounded by for the most part other officers who were as naive as him. But he he did have with him. An Indian agent who understood who had witnessed Santa creek, and and and try his own way to prevent it. Who is cautioning him saying, look general Hancock, the Indians don't wanna fight you. If they wanted to fight you their villages wouldn't be standing here. So close by the last thing, you wanna do is his fight. They wanna talk. Hancock. Really couldn't see that. And more importantly, he. Although he announced that his Republican Simpson that his purpose was go out into the southern plains and make peace. He was quite ready. Fully instructed his subordinates that look we we come in peace, but we come fully prepared to make war as well. And I think he was looking for any excuse to to to show off US military might there. He was he was he was he Roman nose essentially, whereas happened so much in the west they were talking past one another. There are a number of Indians who tell very flatly to the army what they believe and what they know. And when we come back, we'll meet two of them one is a Kiowa chief Santana called order order of the planes. Another one is a Cheyenne chief buffalo.

"Custer's low class rank would result in like an obscure posting in the army Custer was lucky enough to graduate as the civil war broke out. And that was basically all hands on deck. Sure show. He just pressed him out there. So in April eighteen sixty one Custer joined the union army's cavalry and actually proved himself there a competent reliable soldier in battle such as the first battle of bull run Manassas Virginia in the battle of Gettysburg. I'm gonna do a future topic on the battle of Gettysburg just saying that shows up a lot, but keep this so customers to several times despite having no direct command experience, but Custer did become one of the youngest generals in the union army at age twenty three his relentless pursuit of the army. Northern Virginia is often partially credited for helping to end the civil war. Okay. So Custer twos. Credit? He wasn't afraid of getting his hands dirty. Unlike many other generals, he led his men from the front instead of from Bihar. Hind and was often the first to plunge into battle in February eighteen sixty four Custer, married. Elizabeth or Libby bacon. She wasn't initially impressed with him and her father judge Dana bacon, disapproved of Custer as a match because he was just the son of a blacksmith. It wasn't until well after Custer had been promoted to the rank of Brigadier General that he gained the approval of judge bacon and the go ahead to marry Libby. Join six yeah. In eighteen sixty six he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in charge of the seventh cavalry unit and went with liberty Kansas to fight in the plains Indian wars. So the Great Plains and the mid nineteenth century. They were last real native American holdout in America. So settlers were colonizing the far west before this award happen, but not too many actually settled in the planes due to its weather, and, you know, large native American population. Sure, they were scared of them at that point. But after the civil war far west became scarcer and the US government granted ten percent of planes land to settlers and railroads. So basically a confrontation between the plains Indians. Against the settlers and the government forces beat was inevitable. Yeah. Of course. And I'm saying plains Indians because they referred to themselves as the plains Indians as group, otherwise I'm trying to say Americans this. It's excellent. We try and be respectful of all all people places and things. Yes. So by the eighteen sixties most native Americans had been forced onto reservations or outright killed vowing to avoid the same fate the plains Indians settled in for a long fierce hold out in hopes of squashing, the native Americans livelihood. The government allowed the roads to kill scores of buffalo herds in order to lay railroad tracks. They also urged hunters to kill as many buffalo as possible without any oversight. And they encourage trains to stop. So passengers could get off and massacre. Buffalo work. Yeah. Yeah. The more that the whites needlessly slaughtered the buffalo the anger the native Americans grew. Yeah. Some stage brutal tax on settlers in railroad workers without regard to age your gender and to the native Americans the railroad represented an end to their livelihood since from Linnea. They'd relied on the free roaming buffalo to surf. Oh my gosh. So by the time Custer arrived on the scene in eighteen sixty six the war between the army and the plains Indians was like really in full force Custer's first assignment was helping Major General Winfield. Scott Hancock carry out. What was essentially a shock-and-awe campaign to overwhelm the native Americans at the end of the campaign custard. Deserted his post and join his wife at Fort Riley, Kansas like like he was out there fighting, and then he was like, I'm gonna head home..
