3 Days After Christmas and the Wounded Knee Massacre

Do Not Forget When It Happened

On this day in 1890 3 days after Christmas there were over 300 American Indians from the Sioux Nation forced to camp at Wounded Knee by the U. S. Army.

The next day on December 29, 1890 over 300 Sioux men, women and children were massacred. Because of a winter storm the frozen bodies of 146 of the Sioux were not buried in a mass grave until January 1, 1891.
