Ft Yates should be renamed Lame White Man , which was the name of the Cheyenne War Chief killed in the Battle of Little Bighorn . He was the only Cheyenne Chief killed in that battle. The Lakota called him Bearded Man . Lame White Man was a person of greater importance than some civil war staff officer.
Yates and Custer were civil war buddies that meet in Michigan , Custer got Yates a staff job with General Pleasonton during the war . Yates body was moved to Ft Leavenworth from where it was first interred. There used to be an Arty Battery in San Fran named after Yates .
at 2 1/3 million acres there are only 4 Reservations larger. Maybe you should go see the sacred rock , it is at the gate of Ft Yates . Standing Rock is where Crazy Horse was born. They have a sacred stone in Mecca too , but you cannot see it .

Two of my Great Uncles got into a gunfight with one another out by the Hen House @ Great Grandma's , Uncle Gar killed his brother. When he got out of the Pen , Grandma never would let him in the house , if he came by she would talk to him at the door.
