Yes, even after the war he was brutal towards former Confederates, then
moved on to the Plains Indians. What I was getting at was that previously
I'd heard that if a statue of a person on a horse has both front legs in the
air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air,
the person died as a result of battle wounds; if the horse has all four legs
on the ground, the person died of natural causes. The Sheridan statue is
pictured at Both
front feet are in the air, so this kind of disputes the statue-battle death

Good point. I was being helpful towards you Southern folks going to the
convention (You might want to think twice about leaving that Confederate
flag on the back of your pickups.) :-)
