Captain Jack ble hengt
Kintpuash, også kjent som Captain Jack, ble hengt. Captain Jack var høvding for modoc-indianerne i California og Oregon. I april 1870 ledet høvdingen folket sitt tilbake til de gamle stammeområdene fra Klamath-reservatet der den amerikanske regjeringen hadde tvunget dem til å slå seg ned. Mellom 1872 og 1873 var Captain Jack og han krigere i konflikt med regjeringssoldater som forsøkte å hente dem tilbake til reservatet. Modoc-indianerne brukte det forrevne lavalandskapet som dekning, og klarte å holde stand mot hæren i månedsvis.

Captain Jack drepte den amerikanske generalen Edward Canby og presten Eleazar Thomas under fredsforhandinger under krigen. Dette førte til at modoc-lederne ble hengt på denne dag for krigsforbrytelser. Canby var den eneste amerikanske generalen som falt under indianerkrigene, og Captain Jack var den eneste som ble tiltalt for krigsforbrytelser.

    Øyvind Flatnes Svartkrutt.net is owned and maintained me whose name is Øyvind Flatnes. I'm a Norwegian black powder shooter and I started this web site in February 2000. The ambition was to provide Norwegians with a black powder site in our native language, but since then most of the content is also translated to English. I'm also the author of a black powder book, which was published in March 2005. This book is currently available in Norwegian only.
