A book described as about the rescue of 7th Cavalry after Wounded Knee to save them from massacre???

I had an author Erich Hicks contact me about his book and I questioned him about the part of the title “Rescue at Pine Ridge” which he describes as ” Rescue at Pine Ridge is the fictionalize historical story of the 9th Cavalry from its Congressional conception in 1866, to the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn’t for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.”

He also said on the radio that the Buffalo Soldiers “tamed the west including the American Indians”. And also stated that the “massacre” that the 7th Cavalry were saved from started in a Lakota ambush when the Buffalo Soldiers were 7 miles away, the rode in and saved the day but in all that time only one member of the 7th was killed. In the time it took Black Elk to ride the same distance into Wounded Knee 300+ souls were gone.

The word massacre is used three times and refers to the 7th as being victim and potential victim in two (for invading and killing families) whereas Lakota are not mentioned once as victims and sadly many ignorant readers won’t know who were the victims at Wounded Knee. Now I haven’t read the book, it might be great I don’t know but I wanted to question his choice of focusing on a mythic “Rescue” of the 7th Cavalry who had just committed one of their acts of genocide at Wounded Knee and why anyone would frame it like the 7th were in danger of massacre like the Little Big Horn. Seems like a fair question. But he refuses to answer my questions about those choices and has just thrown abuse at me.

This is who he is http://www.facebook.com/erich.hicks and this is tha fan page about the book http://www.facebook.com/pages/Buffalo-Soldier-Novel-Rescue-at-Pine-Ridge/126173177429157 Judge for yourselves… I’ve posted the endless exchange below. It’s the sort of thing one shouldn’t bother with but when someone puts out there that somehow the murderers of the 7th who had invaded a sovereign nation to murder were somehow the ones in jeopardy??? Well I have too many friends that are descendants of the victims of Wounded Knee not to question this. Feel free to ask him your own questions. The dialogue was posted on my wall. www.facebook.co./steve.l.simpson to those of you who are friends of mine there.

Here it is:

Steven Lewis Simpson Hi Erich, I am curious about the title in terms of who was being rescued at Pine Ridge as the 7th Cavalry had just committed their most infamous (but far from only) act of genocide and the extra troops from the 8th were sent there to help suppress further resistance and suppress the religious freedom of people on their sovereign land. They were all invaders in another country so they were there in defiance of article 6 of the US constitution. The western frontier was safe before these cavalry’s invaded. Glorifying the “rescue of the 7th” is like glorifying a rescue of SS officers from Auchwitz.

Erich Hicks Hello Steven…before I answer your question, go to the novel’s webpage, go 2/3 of the way down and look for the word, ‘Tribute”. When listening, be sure to listen into 1:41…then I’ll answer. As far as SS Officers…YOU WEREN’T A SLAVE GIVEN A GUN TO FREE YOURSELF. IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY, YOU WOULD KNOW THAT 180,000 CIVIL WAR BLACK VETERANS WERE PART OF THE INDIAN WARS, THE PUSH WESTWARD! Therefore, as in the song by Bob Marley, “If you know your history; Then you would know where you are comin’ from; Then you wouldn’t have to ask me, who the ‘eck do I think I am”! As far as the comment, “Safe”, the frontier wasn’t ‘all’ that safe because of the Civil War my friend…it became the ‘Bad Lands”; that’s why the ‘safe’; know your history.

Steven Lewis Simpson We are not talking about slaves here we’re talking about a writer choosing to tell a story of a cavalry unit being sent in to a sovereign nation (the civil war was not an element there) to “rescue” the 7th who had massacred a people. These territories were free of those from the US under the treaties until the cavalry were sent in in violation. I do not question the desire of a writer to write about the 8th as it’s an amazing subject. I’m questioning a writer choosing to use a title that disregards history. Like writing about the “rescue” of Clansmen from the hands of those they chose to lynch.

Steven Lewis Simpson Russell is a dear friend of mine, but sadly, as I’m sure you know he has more pressing things on his mind. All I am responding to is the choice of “Rescue at Pine Ridge” about rescuing the murderous 7th from what might have been “another massacre like the Little Big Horn”??? I know too much about Wounded Knee. What do you think was going on there? The 7th were in danger because they’d just massacred people in a foreign country? A The United States Army was also guilty of a massacre in early December of 1890. Troops A & B of the 8th Cavalry under Capt. Almond B. Wells was stationed at Olrichs, S.D. Wells allowed Lt. Joseph C. Byron to enter the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and massacre a small band of Indians under Chief Two Strike on Cuny Table with Cannon fire. All the Indians were killed. This incident appears to have been covered up by the United States Army for the past 100 years. The property of the Indians was buried and the soldiers of the 8th Cavalry were sworn to secrecy, so that even General Miles, the overall commander at Wounded Knee in 1890, may not have been aware of it.

Steven Lewis Simpson This started after you sent this because I asked a question and you’ve blustered on about various things, without ever addressing why you chose this particular twist on history for your story? As I say I think the 8th is an amazing subject… so why choose fictionalizing one of the most horrific events in US history that’s on one of the most significant spots in the history of US civil rights where you must have known many people would be offended by even an indication that the 7th were in need of “rescue” after there mass murder?

Steven Lewis Simpson As I’ve said a few times I’m questioning the implications around the title and asking why you chose to see it that way… I’ve been on the site yet. It was a typo about the 8th not the 9th, probably as they were all there. I think the fact that more medals of honor were awarded for this massacre than were awarded for any other battle including DDay shows how is was such a calculated act of the government at the time. My question remains as to why “Rescue at Pine Ridge”?

Steven Lewis Simpson Jesus Christ man I’ve read this ” Rescue at Pine Ridge is a untold story that embodies the Native American Indians, Outlaws and Buffalo Soldiers, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America.

Rescue at Pine Ridge depicts the true gallantry and spirit of these Black Buffalo Soldiers in the United States Army. These volunteer soldiers endured extreme hardships in their everyday lives, not only from the environment, weather, military personnel, and enemies of the United States, but also from the ones they were sworn to protect.

The gossip and rumors they experienced were false due to paranoia and racism. The civilians, their officers, the Native American Indians that gave them their name, who observed their bravery, gallantry and heroism, knew better. For the Buffalo Soldiers, it was duty and honor!

Rescue at Pine Ridge is about brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, the story of the rescue of the famed” A few times and it does nothing to answer my question why you choose of all the stories you could do with them to create one around a “Rescue at Pine Ridge” of the genocidal 7th, who didn’t need rescuing and there was no chance of another Little Big Horn, which was not a massacre as it was just an act of self defense when villages and families were attacked. Machine gunning and blowing up with canons a village of people is a massacre. I still answer a simple question that you are doing everything you can to run away from answering. There’s no denying it. You’re like a politician dodging the question.

It can only be propaganda if you believe the 7th were in fear of another “Little Big Horn”, either that or it’s your sick little fantasy but I credit you with more intelligence than that. I am friends of way too many families that lost relatives in the massacre and who also were under attack there again in 73 to not find such manipulation distasteful. But you have failed to back up anything I’ve questioned… you just deflect… why is that? I am just asking simple questions and you could easily try giving a reasonable explanation. You choose not to so that is up to you how you choose to depict yourself. Instead of going into attack mode you could have given a reasonable explanation. But you choose to evade.

BTW this is Steven’s assistants, nanny’s grandmother’s childhood sweethearts cardiologist responding on Steven’s behalf. Certainly if the Lakota were such poor fighters that in the process of attempting to massacre the 7th they could only kill one in the time it took the 9th to ride 7 miles. Gee, also sounds like too much weight is placed around the accounts of the Chicago papers of the time who had a history of writing fictional incidents in Indian Country as fact. I can imagine how much Russ would chew out Erich it he realized someone used the word massacre three times about conflict between the 7th and the Lakota and cited the 7th as twice on the receiving end without ever mentioning the Lakota as victims of even one. You really don’t know the man if you think he’d stand for that gross level of manipulation.

Martin Sensmeier Selling lies is another form of manipulating the less fortunate and in some cases, uneducated. It’s people like yourself, Erich, that misinform people and perpetuate ignorance..

Martin Sensmeier and i’ll bet there are some people on the Ridge who’d like to work.. they’re fucking poor.. and unfortunately, the curriculum that the government assigns to kids these days, doesn’t accurately teach history very well.. Therefore, even a lot of indians are uneducated as to the real history of the united states.. So go ahead and promote teaching your version to people that aren’t informed of the basis of your knowledge

Steven Lewis Simpson Martin you’ve got to love the logic of his convictions. The 7th were on the verge of being wiped out, the 9th hear the gunshots while 7 miles away, ride in to save the day, and only one member of the 7th is killed in that time tough it was imminently a massacre???? He doesn’t realize that this level of logic should reveal that whatever his source is is one of manipulative propaganda that helped justify the “Battle of Pine Ridge” as the US was trying to portray it as at the time. Either that or he’s saying the Lakota were incompetent warriors which also would be BS. But that might not be in his book, I’m only responding to WHAT HE SAID. But hey all I’m doing is asking a simple question.
