History 605: S1, Ep 6 "All Guns Fired at One Time - Wounded Knee"

Ben Jones
South Dakota State Historical Society

History 605 host Dr. Ben Jones talks with author Jerome Greene about his book, All Guns Fired at One Time. Green presents the direct voices and memories of survivors and witnesses. In addition to extensive first-person accounts, Greene assembles an array of little-known newspaper stories, interviews, correspondence, and testimony, setting them in the context of the days and moments leading to the massacre and the landscape on which it occurred. Together, these sources add a new dimension to the story of what really happened at Wounded Knee. The book can be purchased here:
