Crazy Horse History

The first paragraph:

“This sign is dedicated to the greatest of Sioux Warriors—CHIEF CRAZY HORSE, light-haired, fair-skinned, gray-eyed, he was modest, courteous, generous, of great physique and known for his self-denial. His success and influence were his personality and bravery in battle. He was never involved in any of the numerous massacres on the trail, but was a fine leader in practically every open fight. “Listen now,” Crazy Horse said, “You cannot sell the ground you walk on.”—He never signed a peace treaty—His loyalty to his people caused the army to trick him to his death. Crazy Horse represented the fighting Sioux from 1870 to 1877—He never was photographed.”
