Nine years later, during the Ghost Dance Movement, Indian police were sent to arrest Sitting Bull, who was accused of encouraging Indian rebellion.


At dawn on December 15, 1890, Sitting Bull was pulled from his cabin bed by Indian police, and when he resisted, the famous chief was shot and killed by an Indian police officer named Red Tomahawk.

Frontier Slang, Lingo & Phrases - Autographed

Frontier Slang, Lingo & Phrases - By Kathy Weiser-Alexander, Owner/Editor of Legends of America - Autographed From the wild and woolly mining camps, to the rampages of the Civil War, to the many cowboys riding on the range, those frontier folks often used terms and phrases that are no longer used in everyday language today. Yet other words and sayings were often specific to certain regions and never used across the states. These terms, as in the past, are still sometimes heard in specific areas, but are “foreign” to the rest of us. From the pages of period newspapers, books, and century old dictionaries comes the slang, lingo, and phrases of the American Frontier. Even if you're not looking for a definition, you'll get a peek into the charm and character of a historic era. In addition to the hundreds of words and phrases, readers will also enjoy more than 150 vintage images.
