A situation had arisen at Red Cloud Agency to kill the Officers. American Horse: "You are brave today because you are many, but what about tomorrow? With railroads on all sides. The soldiers will come from everywhere. You have little food or ammunition. It will be your people's end. Stop, I say, stop now!" Jack Red Cloud stuck a revolver in his face. "It is men like you, who have reduced our race to slavery and starvation!" The uprising ceased. American Horse saved more than the day.
