Welcome to episode 40 of The Great Deception Podcast. On this episode I will take a look at the Buffalo Wars (Massacre) of the 1800s where the Bison population in America went from 60 million around 1800 to 541 by 1889. Since the bison was the staple of the Plains Indians this massacre was meant to decimate the Native population and force them onto reservations.
Major General Philip Sheridan said "“Kill every buffalo you can! Every buffalo dead is an Indian gone.” President Ulysses S. Grant saw the destruction of buffalo as solution to the country’s “Indian Problem.” General William Tecumseh Sherman knew that as long as the Sioux hunted buffalo, they’d never surrender to life with a plow.
