I am very pleased that Lilah Morton Pengra has given me permission to post her article, "A Brief Biography of Afraid of Lightning." As you read the article and its extensive notes, you will see she makes reference to many of the contributors to this board as well as the board itself.
Lilah also gave me permission to offer an article about the strip of skin taken from Isaiah Dorman (about whom she wrote Isaiah Dorman: Interpreting the Evidence) who was an interpreter with the 7th Cavalry who died during the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
A more detailed examination of that topic was presented as "Battlefield Mutilation and a Strip of Skin" at the Custer Battlefield Historical & Museum Association's 2015 symposium. The Association publishes digests of its symposiums that can be purchased if you want to learn more about the topic.
