Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the 9th Cavalry from its Congressional conception in 1866, to the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers in 1890. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again, after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story has 'never' been told in length until now.

The 7th was arrogant in their duties, with revenge in their hearts for 'Little Big Horn', and this is proven the next day after the Wounded Knee Massacre, when they rode into a trap in the box canyon, because they 'did not' send out scouts, to scout the area, for if they did, they wouldn't have ridden into a trap.

Revenge is a word, 'that' does not stand in military terms, as a military action, therefore; when a military unit commits revenge, there 'is' no honor! Revenge is the only word you could put on this stupidity of killing 350 old women, old men and children with rifles, gatling guns and hotchkiss cannons which fire one explosive shrapnel shall as fast the cannon could be loaded, up to 2 miles. What honor is there in such an action?

More Medals of Honor were given to the 7th Cavalry for Wounded Knee, for revenge, then all America's troops received for Normandy, D-Day, WW-II. This story is about, brutality, compassion, revenge, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

The story embodies the Native Americans, Outlaws, and African-American/Black Soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching Untied States of America.

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at: http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first African-American/Black woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's, "spread the word".

NOTE: Congresswoman Jackie Speier, along with Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Congressman Geoff Davis and now Senator Dianne Feinstein are preparing legislation to recognize the Buffalo Soldiers, Colonel Charles Young and the 25th Infantry as being the first National Park Rangers; Yellowstone; Yosemite; Kings; Sequoia and Volcano National Park in Hawaii, therefore; please recognize the ones that lead that path, by publishing this story, and telling family and friends to purchase the novel in support of this unknown history, "Rescue at Pine Ridge", the original Buffalo Soldiers, the first generation... Rescue at Pine Ridge concludes with the prestigious duty the 9th Cavalry received, for historical fact, no other military unit to date, has received such prestigious duty as, Presidential Parade Escort Duty and Presidential Guard Duties for accomplishments, which lead to the troopers mentioned above accomplishments as the nations first, National Park Rangers.
