Portrait of people involved in Plenty Horses' Trial, including Plenty Horses, Living Bear, Bear-That-Lays-Down, He Dog, Broken Arm, White Moon, Rock Road, Pete Richard, Phillip H. Wells, William Rowland Thompson, Cris Mathison, F. C. Fry, Captain J. G. Ballance, W. B. Sterling, George P. Nock, and D. E. Powers.
Biographical/Historical note:
Plenty Horses was tried at Fort Meade in South Dakota for the killing of Army Lieutenant Edward W. Casey during the Wounded Knee Massacre. The central argument of Plenty Horses' lawyers George Nock and David Powers was that a state of war existed between the United States and the Lakota Nation; as such, the belligerents could kill each other without threat of criminal penalty. The court found that a state of war did exist and released Plenty Horses, thereby exonerating the soldiers of the Seventh Cavalry involved in the Massacre.
