The Sioux Indians were outraged when white settlers poured into their sacred Black Hills in violation of the 1868 treaty with the United States. The settlers ignored the treaty to search for gold.

 

The American people and government cried out for revenge after the massacre of Custer and his troops. The government's and the Army's goal became to resolve the Indian resistance once and for all.

 

By the early 1880's, the plains Indians had been subdued and the Army started closing down its forts all over the American West
