"A righteous and beneficial a deed as ever took place on the frontier." -

Theodore Roosevelt, commenting on the Sand Creek massacre wherein 70 to 162 native people were killed and mutilated, two-thirds women and children.

Another comment of Roosevelt’s concerning the Native American plight was, “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe 9 out of 10 are, and I shouldn’t like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth.”

(source.)

I feel that it should be noted that during the year of the Sand Creek massacre (1864), the president of the United States was none other than Abraham Lincoln.
