#Onthisday 1890 The US Army massacred over 300 Lakota, 200 of whom were women & children, at Wounded Knee. 20 Medal of Honor were awarded that day to 7th Cav, one of them to Pvt. Thomas Sullivan from Meath. Another to Sgt James Ward. A dark day in our past.

Hi, I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now. I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in. Hope you enjoy.
