Custer's Revenge

George Armstrong Custer was born on December 5th, 1839. Ironically on his 177th birthday the Army Corps of Engineers has set a deadline for the Standing Rock Protesters to move to a new site.

Meanwhile 3500 veterans have joined the protests to form a human barrier joining the protest. Powerful moneyed interests want the pipeline built including the President-elect who sees it as part of his overall energy plan. I see it a bit differently, How about some music?

This tune is unrelated but it reminded me of the "Indian Wars" and the general pattern of history. We seemed doomed to repeat history.
