Two 16-year-old boys (James Bacon and William Kelley) were sent out from the ranch they lived on to find some missing horses. They later stopped at another ranch, and at that ranch, some White men had had a feud with some Indians over a card game. The Indians planned to return to the ranch and kill the White men. Meanwhile, neighbors of the boys had become worried since the boys had not returned from gathering the missing horses. A search party later found the boys: they had been attacked. Kelley was dead, but Bacon was still alive. The Indians had attacked the two boys instead of attacking the men at the ranch. The search party wanted to take the Bacon boy home, but he didn’t want to leave Kelley’s body alone so he refused to return home with the men. When the men returned the next day with a wagon, they discovered that the Indians had returned during the night and killed Bacon. The families of the boys were so upset by the incident that they moved to another state. An Indian named Two Sticks was arrested and tried for the murders of the two boys at Fort Meade, South Dakota. He was found guilty and hanged. (Sounds like a ‘hate crime’ to me).
