Crazy Horse (1840 – 1877) – He was a great Sioux warrior and a leader in the Great Sioux War of 1876.
Crazy Horse’s participation in several famous battles of the American Indian Wars on the northern Great Plains earned him great respect from both his enemies and his own people.
Crazy Horse ranks among the most notable and iconic of Native American warriors and was honored by the U.S. Postal Service in 1982 with a 13¢ Great Americans series postage stamp.
The worst part is I don’t remember ever learning about Crazy Horse in my history classes. Might have to do with the fact that I grew up in Canada, but his story still should have been thought in class when learning about First Nation people. Do you agree?
