And then when i started reading articles about whether or not she was Gay and in a situation where she was not allowed to live that way. And you know. Speculation abounds because of things like she dressed like a man and she hung out with them in and she never had any boyfriends There is There are stories of her getting married later in life and having a child but i also saw some articles that call that into question saying that. Maybe that didn't even happen. Well there's no certificates and right on record But it made me wonder about while bill hickok and if he was Maybe knew the deal and was sympathetic to what was going on so he was her beard. Well not beard. Because he didn't act as her boyfriend or anything but just maybe sympathetic to her I mean that's what i cooked up in my head. at least i gotcha. I had seen their their plenty of Articles that put the two together romantically Some say that she she yeah she was in him and he wasn't into her And it really kind of demonstrates like just how hard it is to pin down fact from fiction in her story in particular but the is it is factual that she in bill. Hitchcock were close friends at the very least in deadwood And that she was there when he was murdered in august of eighteen. Seventy six when he was shot in the back of the head. By jack mccall at point blank range while bill was At a at a gambling table in a saloon in in deadwood. Yeah which was very tough on her.

She bought a ranch on the yellowstone river but only stayed there for about a year when to california only stayed there about a year eventually went to texas and this is where she supposedly Married clinton burke in el paso and then they went back to colorado and ran a hotel as a family but again i saw that called into speculation yes. Supposedly there are corroborating account of witnesses seeing her with a young child In some of these places so it is possible. She did have a daughter But again there's no birth certificates or anything anyway. Apparently some women came forward in the fifties or sixties and claim to be while bill hickok and calamity. jane's daughter oh but was was exposed as a fraud later. Yeah no that was disappointing. I thought so too right there at the end of the legs out from under you know Eventually close to nineteen hundred In eighteen ninety five she said. Hey you know what i can do.

"Book today is American Cipher. Bowe Bergdahl in the U. S Tragedy in Afghanistan by Farwell and Ames. I'm ready from Chapter four titled An Army of one. Two years after the incident at Cape May, Bo's failure still eight had him He never told his parents what had happened the day they shipped me out. I thought occurred to me and it stayed in my mind whenever I thought about the Coast Guard, he told General Doll. That was that I wanted to fix that. Those who knew him knew ball was struggling with something he would never say what it was. But the tension was plain. He spent more and more time in his room and Anna's. There was no bed, No couch, no TV, but on his days off from work, he stayed there sometimes for days at a time. Contain and her other new roommate heard him yelling at himself. I can't believe you did that. That was so stupid. Some of his friends worried. But Bo never complained and around men. In particular, he carried himself with stoic severity. Women saw a more concerning aspect in the Harrisons kitchen. One of Kim's friends grabbed his hand flipped his forearm over to reveal the neat rows of cuts. You're such nice arms, she said. What the heck are you doing to yourself? Getting ready. He told her. What are you getting ready for? Pain. Well, what on earth are you talking about? I'm just getting ready. Enough time had passed. Where I got uncomfortable again would not doing something that was making difference, he told Doll. Years later, his parents put him in touch for their pastor from Boise, Phil Proctor. Was ministering with seminary students in north eastern Uganda, Uganda, Mo. Told his parents. It sounded interesting. He could go to East Africa and teach Villagers self defense techniques. But the timing didn't work out. All the seminary spots were taken. That spring. Bo's seeking came full circle. He remembered meeting another Coast Guard washout who asked him if he wanted to know who told him that if he wanted to, he could re enlist. The army was stressed for new warm bodies. His family knew even thinking about it. Whatever you do, don't join the army, his sister and Albrecht told him it was a bit of the old Army Navy rivalry coming through. But sky also believed that the Navy took care of its own in a way that the army never had. Mother agreed, but didn't think that would actually enlist. Days later, when she saw him on the highway driving back from twin falls in his motorcycle. She knew that he had At the Army recruiting station. Bo was a young man in a hurry. He told the recruiter that he wanted to become a scout, a soldier who risks who takes risky missions to track down enemy positions. The recruiter told him. There were no more slots available for scouts, but that he had three openings in the infantry. We should fill up fast. If Bergdahl didn't act quick, he offered him a $5000 signing bonus to sweeten the deal. In the spring of 2008. The army had lowered its recruiting standards to levels levels not seen since the end of the draft. Five years earlier. At the start of the Iraq war, 94% of new Records had high school diplomas. 2005. That number had dropped to 71% new soldiers with what the army defined as category for intelligence. Those who scored in the 30th percentile or below. Were accepted as Iraq burned, their numbers rose, rising from just 6 1/100 of a percent of new recruits and upto 4% convicted felons could secure a waiver for from a sympathetic officer. And they were accepted to physical fitness standards, dropped. Recruiters fudged paperwork and coached problem cases like Bergdahl through background checks. His coast Guard diagnosis was no longer disqualified. He simply signed a form prepared by his recruiter stating that he had overcome is earlier issues. Dolls waiver was approved in late May, 2008 and he was issued orders to Fort Benning, Georgia, for infantry, One station unit training where civilians were turned into inference, Infantrymen. His parents didn't take. The news is badly is Bo had feared Johnny Johnny was relieved that he would no longer be traveling the world alone. Bob thought the structured life would do him good reading the news the time. He also believed that the Taliban was on the run and the risk of serious combat was low. He's barely going to get in on the war in Afghanistan. Bob recall thinking at the time, it's almost over. Kim and her brother took a much worse. Mark Farris is heart sank at the news The last they had talked about was planning a two week wilderness trip in the Yellowstone River in a sea kayak. It was a wild idea. It would be a rough trip, but Ferris thought it could work. The army would not work. If there was a human being unfit for the army, who should never have joined the army. It was Boz and Ferris. He was naive, idealistic, good spirited, a very gentle person and a gentle soul. Anna Fontaine was equally concerned. Why does this Why was this a better idea than the Coast Guard? You tried this before? It didn't work. Why are you putting yourself through this again? Bo told her he was older now and had been shirred. Was naive. Then, he said, I now know what to expect. And I had grown up in the south near Army bases and told him he wouldn't like the rough culture. It didn't matter. He was dead set on it. She said he was going home. Parting words to him were keep your head down. Don't be a hero. During two weeks of in processing is an infantry training at the Army's 60th adage in general reception Battalion, Bergdahl learned that the Army didn't care for his feelings, his opinions or his time. He stood in one line after another for physical exams for drawing equipment and for having his head shaved. His free time was spent in an open Bay Starship barracks filled with bunk beds and his fellow recruits. Second Battalion, 58th Infantry House of Payne was one of six training battalions on Sand Hill section of Fort Benning reserved for basic training. Each battalion was led by a lieutenant colonel. Within the battalions were six companies, each led by a captain and a first sergeant. There were four platoons in each company led by drill sergeants.

"John Baxter. This is the John Basso. So Peter cousins, his book is the Earth is weeping the epic story of the Indian wars for the American West. We're at the moment. Where General Terry General Crook, Colonel Custer. All of them are now following a course laid out by the Grant administration provoke war with the Sioux Sitting Bull. And crazy horse and all of the attendant tribes, The Cheyenne Everything is going to collapse right now into what we know is the battle of the Big Little Bighorn. And then after that the retribution The blame shifting and 140 years of what happened. And why. Peter General Teri's in charge of the overall general cooks along he has 1000 men. They also have a battle plan laid out to provoke to find the tribes and bring them to battle. Is that why they're out there in the this is the Yellowstone River all the way up to the big horn. They seeking a set battle pieces that it Peter Well, there were three different expositions, extraditions moving simultaneously. There's the one under general Terry, uh, which Custer's principal subordinate as commander of the seventh Cavalry that are moving From east to West along roughly along the line, the Yellowstone there's extradition under Colonel John given that is moving east from Montana territory along the Yellowstone and then an expedition under General George Crook that's moving north. From North Central Wyoming. And the idea is it's pretty rough plan Man, as by necessity to had to be because no one quite sure where they knew where the Indians weren't any given moment, and they need a village and moved every three or four days. The idea being that at least one of these expeditions would make contact with the Indians, and the notion was it Any of the three were large enough to tackle the Indians on their own. Given the army's intelligence on India strength, which happened to be having a grossly underestimate the Indian strength, or that if by some quirk of fate some stroke of luck to or even all three of them were able to converge and and And crush the Indians between the three. So that was kind of the rough plan that one would strike them on. And with luck, perhaps both for all three There's a smaller battle battle of the Rose bed, and there are not many casualties there often aren't the Indians break off. But general crooked this point you right loses stomach for the fight was Was he appalled by what they were doing? Is that it? I think for your quick Rosebud is in terms of the number of troops and the number of Indian warriors engage was actually the largest battle to occur in the Indian wars of the West, the crook between soldiers and his shirt Shoni and Crow Indian auxiliaries. And and civilians and Teamsters he had on a T least 1500 men. Um I can't recall the precise number but at least 1500 It was not close to 1718 100 men and the number of Indian warriors, of course, is never certain, but it was at least 1000. So this was it was a It was fought over this rolling, you know, open Prairie back and forth through ravines and up ridges. And just, you know, just swirling affair almost all day long. But the casual Rollo because as a zoo, you say in party the Indians didn't do not close with the enemy. They were not looking too. Sustained or inflict heavy casualties, but rather to to teach the soldiers a lesson that is to leave them alone and Tonto. They hoped for some to withdraw and neither side could could hit the broadside of a barn. Really. So it's really remarkable having walked around and it's the thing that this action involving almost 4000 men went on the better part of a day. In the casualty. Total casualties were less than 100, but it was a major blow. In that it did not cook out of the part of the campaign and the crook. Not so much. He was not. Defeated militarily, but he was defeated. Psychologically, he crook had had great success against the Apaches, but he had never. It never encountered more than you know, relative and full of Indians at a time and basically guerilla warfare. He never in his long career had never faced. Set piece battle with hundreds of Indians and galloping down on him through ravines and over over ridges. I don't think he I think, frankly think he had executed out of him. Tunis there was psychologically defeated. June. 22nd Custer heads up the Rose Bud will follow customer just a moment here just right this moment. Sitting bull has a dream or a vision. What is it, Peter? What does he see in his in his in his spirits. He has a vision during the Sundance which was the most important ritual religious ritual Other of the Plains Indians, particularly the Lakota and in the Sundance Here, he undergoes, um self inflicted. Torture to help provoke a vision a dream and he sees Um Innumerable numbers of soldiers falling from the sky upside down, and a far smaller number of Indians falling upside down from the sky. He interprets this You mean that walk on Tonka. The great Spirit is telling him that the that his Lakota Cheyenne alliance will score a great victory against the Army with small losses, and he further interpreted to mean that they will score this victory, but they will only On Lee Reap the fruits of this victory if they do not mutilate or plunder the enemy dead, and that is that is his vision. And that vision is it conveyed to the other tribes? Everybody gathered absolutely can. It's conveyed to everyone attendant at the Sundance and that included not only the Lakota but also he's shy and ally. So word of that vision it spread like wildfire throughout the throughout the tribes. So it elected, electrified, electrified the the the Warriors and the Chiefs, and it was one of the reasons why they fight. I think they fought with the band and they did at the rose, but because they had such confidence. That they were that sitting bull head had a divine vision and they were going to achieve a, um, a great victory. However, the Rose Bud was not dead victory of sitting Bull was quick to remind that because in his vision, I should add that the soldiers were flying upside down into the Indian camp. They were flowing into an Indian village. And of course, that the Rose Bud, there was no Indian village near there s O.

"John batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Peter cousins is book is the earth is weakening. The epic story of the Indian moors for the American west at the moment where General Terry general crook. Colonel Custer all of them are now following a course, laid out by the grant administration provoke war with the sue sitting bull and Crazy Horse and all of the attendant tribes. The Cheyenne everything is going to collapse right now into what we know is the battle of the big little big horn. And then after that, the retribution the blame shifting and one hundred and forty years of what happened in why Peter general Terry's in charge of the overall general cooks along he has a thousand men they also have a battle plan laid out to provoke to find the tribes and bring them to battle is that why they're out there. And the this is the Yellowstone river all the. The way up to the big horn. They seeking a a set battle pieces that it Peter. Well, there are three different exposition expeditions movie simultaneously. There's the one under General Terry, which Custer is principal subordinate as commander of the seventh cavalry that are moving from east to west along roughly along the line, the Yellowstone expedition under Colonel John gibbon that is moving east from Montana territory along the Yellowstone and then an expedition under General, George crook. That's moving north from north central Wyoming and the idea it's a it's a pretty rough plan as as. Because no-one Klay sure where the knew where the Indians word any given moment in Indiana village and moved every three or four days the idea being that at least one of these expeditions would make contact with the with the Indians. And the notion was that any of the three were large enough to tackle the Indians on their own given the army's intelligence on India's strength, which happened to be having to go see underestimate the Indian strength or that. If by some quirk of faith, some stroke of luck two or even all three of them were able to converge, and and and crush the the Indians we between the three so that was kind of the rough plan that one would strike them. And with with luck perhaps both for all three. There's a smaller battle battle of the Rosebud. And there are not many casualties. There often aren't the Indians break off. Off, but general crooked this point you right loses stomach for the fight was was he appalled by what they were doing is that it. I think what you're crook. The Rosebud is in terms of the number of troops and the number of Indian warriors engage was actually the largest battle to occur in Indian wars of the west the crook between soldiers and his shoshoni and crow Indian auxiliaries, and and civilians and Teamsters he had at least fifteen hundred men I can't recall the precise number, but at least fifteen hundred it's not close to seventeen hundred eighteen hundred men and the number of union warriors. Of course, it's never certain, but it was at least a thousand. So this was. And it was fought over is rolling open prairie back and forth through ravines ridges, and just you know, into swirling affair almost all day long. But the Cavs we will low because as you as you say bars the Indians did not close with the enemy. They were now looking to sustain or inflict heavy casualties. But rather to to teach the soldiers less lesson that is to leave them alone. And do do they hoped for some to withdraw and neither side could could hit the right side of a barn. Really? So it it's really remarkable having walked round. And it's the thing that this action involving almost four thousand men went on the better part of the day and the casualties total Caspian's, we're less than a hundred. But it was a major blow in that. It knocked crook out of the out of the campaign and the not so much that he was not. Defeated militarily, but he was defeated, psychologically. He had had great success against the Apaches. But he had never it never encountered more than a relative handful of Indians at a time and basically guerrilla warfare. He never in his long career had never faced a set piece battle with hundreds of Indians galloping down on him through ravines and over over ridges. I think he I think frankly think he had heck scared out of him. Psychologically, defeated June twenty second Custer heads up the Rosebud. We'll follow Custer, but just a moment here. Just right at this moment sitting bull has a dream or vision. What is it Peter? What does he see in his in his in his spirits? He has a vision during these Sundance, which was the most important ritual religious ritual of the plains Indians, particularly the Lakota and in this Sundance. He undergoes self inflicted torture. To help provoke vision, you know, dream, and he sees. Innumerable numbers of soldiers falling from the sky upside down and a far smaller number of Indians falling upside down from the sky, he interprets this to mean that walk-on Tonka the great spirit is telling him that the that is Lakota Cheyenne alliance will score a great victory against the army was small losses. Any further interpreted to mean that they will score this victory. But they will only only reap the fruits of this victory. If they do not mutilate or plunder the enemy dead and that is his vision. And that vision is conveyed to the other tribes everybody. Absolutely, absolutely. It's conveyed to everyone attendant at the Sundance and that included not only the Lakota, but also your Cheyenne ally. So where does that vision it spread like wildfire throughout the throughout the? Tribes elected, electrified, electrified, the the the warriors and the chiefs, and it was one of the reasons why they think they fought with the band, and they did it the Rosebud because they had such confidence that they were that sitting bull had had a divine vision that they were going to achieve a a great victory. However, the Rosebud was not dead victory. As sitting bull was quick to remind the because in his vision, I should add that the soldiers were flying upside down into the Indian camp they were flying into an Indian village. And of course at the Rosebud. There was no Indian village near there. And so sitting bull's vision was not fulfilled by the battle the rose. But it was yet to be fulfilled. There will be a smaller Indian village at the little Bighorn when we come back. The battle of the little Bighorn seen by sitting bull before it happened. Peter cousins is the book the earth is weeping. The epic story of the Indy. Ian wars the American west. I'm John bachelor. You're listening to John Batchelor cagey. Oh. I'm Jay.

"Comes to talk. I'm John bachelor, Peter cousins, the earth is weeping. The epic story of the Indian wars the American west we come to the moment that is burned into the twentieth and twenty first century memory of the Indian wars that's Custer's last stand so called by Hollywood Peter thirty one officers v five hundred seventy eight enlisted men, forty five scouts a total of six hundred sixty all told as customer rides off in late you, and this is June twenty second June twenty third June twenty-fourth, what were his orders in his mind at this point? What was he to do when and if he found the two? His orders from general. Alfred Terry is immediate commander were to find the sued village. Find those the large village of sitting bull combined villages sitting bull and and crazy Orson the Cheyenne and. Essentially to use his discretion. Once he found a village, which of course as Terry. Well, new and you're talking about Custer that meant most likely that he would pack it and that was that was fine by Terry. So essentially it was to find a village and then use your discretion as to whether or not to attack that would be another column of smaller count coming down the line of the a little on river from the north and west. But there was no expectation Terry's part that Custer's column and this other column could really coordinate their movements or in any way, shape or form. Engage the the Indian village at the same time this that was known to be a possibility given the nature of India some move every day or two and and the vagaries of situation. So. Servers orders were discretionary in custody. And then use your judgment in customers mind. This was going to be cheetah the the attack that he'd made many years before that had been a great success. He was going to find the village, and then advance and that was a great success for and then it will be now let's come to the June twenty-fourth he rides twenty five twenty eight miles that day. They're they're exhausted. That there are signs of Indian somewhere somewhere around them. There scouts are bringing in information. Now, it's the twenty fifth Indians are on the trail Custer believes that he's lost the element of surprise. How does he react, Peter? He we act with the decision once he learns is ironic that the information is scouts have been telling him as co scouts throughout the course of the day that he should attack at once that they've been spotted and he's not entirely convinced. He he really wants to rest his men he wants to arrest him for the for the arrest June twenty fifth and Ben attack fresh on June twenty six and he's not entirely convinced of it as any reports that we've been seeing until his brother rides up and says, you know, what one of the pack meals on a back trail drops some rations. And we went back to look for in found some Indian scrounging through the rations and had to drive them off and Custer assume that these Indians within ride around his command and alert the village, and that is what when when his brother told him that he instantly decided we've got to attack now because. We will most definitely have lost alma surprise. And the Indian village. We'll do it Indian villages always had done in the past which was to pick up and scatter as quickly as possible. Ironically, those Indians that were scrounging through the rations on the back trail had no desire to get get ahead of Custer or get involved in any kind of fighting whatsoever. And they in fact, trailed along behind and wait until after the battle to join the village, but sadly, of course, could not know that and he made an instant decision to to attack when he learned that divides, his command, Ben teen and one other commander stays with the pack train. He sends Reno to the left. Peter provides maps this he's gone over the battleground, very carefully Reno because he has in mind that he's going to attack like ouachita come from different directions around the village, though, he doesn't know how big the Indian encampment is and the will be surprised to learn that it's vast. He's going ahead with two. Two hundred and twenty one men riding straight into the Indian village. Reno makes contact I renews conduct is puzzling. You've been there Peter did Reno take advantage of the landscape. Did he respond our responsibility to get news to Custer? I think Reno. I. It's very hard to say Reno had a fairly small command. He had one hundred seventy seven manning which about forty were Indian scouts whose job was not to participate in the tack to gather up what they could of the Indian pony herd. So he had fewer than one hundred and fifty men and he's he's riding into the valley as its spectacular seat as broad valley today that he was charging over and instead of coming upon a smaller village that is about to run. He comes face to face with the tail end of. Advas- for anything. He could possibly have imagined or any wanted to ever seen. And there's a critical moment he has to decide whether to ride headfirst into the village and try to disrupt the Indians who are not expecting him or to to pause and take up a defensive position. And he makes the decision to stop pharma's MENA open skirmish line on opening ground and start firing into the village. And that is the first of a fateful series of decisions. He does that the Indians have time to gather them selves. They begin to ride around his flank. He poses men back into a stand of timber next to the little Bighorn, and he's not sure what to do and then customer had given him his favorite scout who was talking to Reno and suddenly a bullet discuss me, bloody knife. Suddenly a bullet blows apart. Muddy nice head and sca- spatters his brains over Reno's drafted at that point Reno completely renowned right? They fall back in disorder. We could say that exactly he he'd been drinking. He was he was he was in shock, and he essentially said every man for themselves, and he wrote off toward the nearest high ground across the river, which actually turned out to be a decent enough physician. But it was not something that he'd planned, right? That becomes Reno's ridge. Now custard around three PM spots. The vast encampment the sue and the Cheyenne. It's vast it's bigger than anything. He's had. He sends word to Ben team to come quick sends him a note at three P three thirty PM. He writes, I'm following your reporting. That's the last we know of Custer. That's it. And Peter's put together a very good and a convincing case for what Custer does after he sends for Ben team to come up. He does not know that Reno's not falling back. He's by himself on the high ground. Overlooking. What we call the little big horn and the Indians called the Gracie grass river. He intends to attack by himself. Peter is that what we think he was going to do to get down through the coolies to attack the village. Exactly to draw some of the pressure off rano perhaps. So that we know could presses attack. Because the last time he saw Reno Reno was with in good shape. He was you know, had not fallen back into the timber. So expect late that he wanted to take the village and what in the flank by this in the side, so to speak and take the pressure off Reno. So the two of them could could create a sort of pincher movement on a village that seems to have been most likely his first line of reasoning that didn't work he he's a command. He wrote down to the river with was immediately thrown hurled back onto high ground on the on the side of the river the side of the river. And then he made an attempt to. To ride further down and outflanked the entire Villigen perhaps take enough women and children presumably who are fleeing a village prisoners. So as to somehow it caused the warriors were to draw and not engage him. He believed at this point that he was outnumbered. However, he continued he set up what you call on battle ridge. He sets up a defensive position he stops his offensive position and digs in up to this point had he ever seen the these to keep coming had are they broken off at some point when they set up a defensive position, I'm trying to imagine how much trouble he believed. He was in. Well, he he had a little inkling three years early on the Yellowstone when he when he was engaged by with a much smaller force. He had a couple of companies we discussed this earlier in our conversation, and he was attacked by perhaps two hundred Lakota warriors. And they kept coming off and on all afternoon. So I mean, he had an inkling that cheaper Lakota might be more persistent than I would I would believe but their persistence this afternoon on June twenty fifth eighteen seventy six was was unprecedented. Of course, they regarding their women and children, right? Exactly. They believe that Custer was going to slaughter them. If they. No other option, but to but to press on and he'd he'd the cavalry come up there. Women the children the whole and cabinets spread out. They're not into defensive position the Crazy Horse had tax Reno. Then he breaks off any attacks Custer sitting bull gets involved. So all of the SU are now attacking Custer and sometime between five and five thirty it ends with the massacre of the whole command Ben team finally John's Reno, and they don't know where customer is. In fact, it will be days before they're free to roam around. And look at the battlefield. You have the reporting the General Terry arrives on June twenty-seventh when they're still counting casualties because Rina's than taking targets. I mean potshot ING for the last two days when Terry realizes the extent this General Terry had been on the river the extent of the massacre. What we're his thoughts had he ever experienced anything. Like, this was a total shock to him. No one in the United States army in the frontier had experienced anything approaching this. This was this is unprecedented. And before I just discussed Terry's reaction for those who haven't been to the little Bighorn. It's very destructive. Realize that the hill that Ben teen reader moron is nearly five miles away from the hill Custer died on and with intervening hills and ravines. So they if nearly five miles and that what I first. Visit the battlefield literally blew my mind to realize how far apart they were. So they they had no inkling and Ben team disbelieved, Terry. When Terry told him what he'd found that as Custer? Terry's reaction was if its first reaction was, oh, my, you know, my God, this is this is horrible. And then over the course of the next day or two as he was steaming down the Yellowstone river knowing he had to write a report of what had happened. He began he essentially prevaricated, and he started thinking of his own hide. And he he changed the narrative and no longer had he given Custer order sacraments on discretion. But now Terry is reporting that he had told Custer to find the Indians. And then wait and not engage them into the other column under Colonel gilpin came up. So he prevaricated he changed narrative and that became became began. What essentially was a a blame game shifting the blame onto Custer for everything that happened.
