Wounded Knee Descendant Apologizes for Massacre

U.S. troops killed over 250 Native Americans in the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre. Now, almost 130 years later, a descendant of a U.S. commander who was in the battle is apologizing.

Brad Upton is the descendant of James Forsyth, who commanded the cavalry that carried out the Wounded Knee Massacre, and said he was sickened when he first learned about his family’s connection to it.
