A new post, This Day in History, has been added to catnipoflife’s sister site, Awakenings. While there are many events that took place on this day, June 25, two are showcased on Awakenings: Battle of Little Bighorn and American Civil War.
Also included is A Prelude to Indian Uprising, which offers insight into the devastating treatment of the Native American Indian. Depicted in poetic verse is The Trail of Tears: one of the saddest episodes in American history. Totally overlooking the Native American Indian in the “All men are created equal” clause of the Declaration of Independence, this episode brutally closed the curtain on native American culture.
