ABSTRACT
The article recalls skirmishes between Modoc Indians, led by Captain Jack, and the U.S. Army in 1873. Captain Jack and his tribe of 53 warriors and 100 women and children left the Klamath Reservation in Oregon to return to their ancestral land. This led to a series of violent confrontations between Captain Jack's tribe and the Army, which cost the Army $4 million. Eventually, Captain Jack surrendered, found guilty of war crimes, and was executed.
