Wooden Leg Hill
June 25, 1876
"A Sioux wearing a war bonnet was lying down behind a clump of sagebrush on the hillside only a short distance north of where now is a big stone...He was...up ahead of me. Many other Indians were near him...The Sioux was peeping up and firing a rifle...a soldier bullet hit him exactly in the middle of the forehead...The shots quit coming from the soldiers...All of the Indians then jumped and rushed forward...The air was full of dust and smoke. Everybody was greatly excited."
Wooden Leg, Northern Cheyenne
