Yep... I got kicked off of a gold mine tour in Deadwood. They said they were established in XXXX year... and I asked, wasn't that like 8 yrs before any whites were allowed in the area..... and the Indians were claiming whites were mining gold here illegally and against the treaties... and isn't that the reason behind the wars that happened as a result.
"hey buddy... you are going to have to leave and we're going to escort you out now".
No joke. Guess the truth .... bothered them.
The place where Wild Bill got shot, was just a empty place when I was there last. Cool to see it and the painting on the floor of the once saloon. Also went to his grave site..... do you think he really wanted Calamity Jane buried next to him ? LOL.
