– A U.S. Army general who routed the Comanche out of the Texas Panhandle to make way for cattle-ranchers. He encouraged Anglo-Americans to “kill, skin, and sell” the buffalos on which the natives relied for sustenance, until not a single one was left. Sheridan believed that the cowboys who would eventually overtake the land would be the “[forerunners] of an advanced civilization.”
