Their feet still firmly of the earth beneath them, natives flee an attack on their camp. Unfortunately many lives were indiscriminately taken after a white death by a black hand. It was never one eye for one eye. The idea of massacres was to amplify the rule by fear. Terrible things happened in the name of a 'right' or 'belief' dressed up falsely as 'law' which no one will be held accountable for as it still is around the globe today.
