|Métis Nation History|
The scalp of his adversary is taken as an evidence of his victory. No Indian ever scalps dead men, such as was done on the 13th of June by Howard, a supposed Christian and civilized "bummer." Howard, moreover, pretends that the alleged body of White Cap contained three bullet wounds, and that these had been inflicted by his Gatling Gun. This oes not say much for the effiency of his gun, as White Cap only died on the 13th, the day after the attack on, and capture of, Batoche, where he was injured.
