Grant Short Bull on Crazy Horse
I WILL TELL you about one of the war stunts that Crazy Horse pulled off that I thought was great. It was in a fight with the Shoshones in I will tell you about one of the war stunts that Crazy Horse pulled off that I thought was great. It was in a fight with the Shoshones in which the Shoshones outnumbered the Oglalas.
Crazy Horse and his younger brother [Little Hawk] were guarding the rear of their war party. After a lot of fighting, Crazy Horse's pony gave out. Crazy Horse turned it loose and the younger brother, who did not want to leave him, turned his own pony loose.
Two of the enemy, mounted, appeared before them for single combat. Crazy Horse said to his brother, "Take care of yourself, I'll do the fancy stunt." Crazy Horse got the best of the first Shoshone, the other one ran away. He got the horses of the two Shoshones and they caught up with their party. They had saved themselves and their party and got the two horses and the scalp of the Shoshone who was killed.
