Problem with historical marker in Almo, Idaho


There's just one problem with a historical marker in Almo, Idaho, that memorializes 300 pioneers who were massacred by Indians in 1861, said sociologist James W. Loewen.


"It never happened at all," he said. It's a product of a period in America's history that Loewen calls the "nadir," or low point, in race relations.

Of the Idaho marker, Loewen said, "It tells us that in 1938, a bunch of white folks were so convinced that Indians were savages ... they put this up."

Is Bigfoot Real or mock? For more than four hundred years, there have been reporting’s of a man like animal that is wholly covered in hair.
