Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The Battle of the Wabash

An important anniversary I missed. On November 4, 1790, an allied Indian force commanded by Little Turtle and Blue Jacket (and including a young Tecumseh who, according to some accounts, was Blue Jacket's brother by adoption) annihilated American forces under the command of Revolutionary War hero Arthur St. Clair. It was the worst defeat ever suffered by the US Army.

Hat tip to Mule Boy at Rule 303.
