In “Oh What a Slaughter, ” Larry McMurtry has written a unique, brilliant, and searing history of the bloody massacres that marked — and marred — the settling of the American West in the nineteenth century, and which still provoke immense controversy today.
Here are the true stories of the West’s most terrible massacres — Sacramento River, Mountain Meadows, Sand Creek, Marias River, Camp Grant, and Wounded Knee, among others. These massacres involved Americans killing Indians, but also Indians killing Americans, and, in the case of the hugely controversial Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, Mormons slaughtering a party of American settlers, including women and children.
