-- On July 19, 1881, after four years of self-exile in Canada, Sitting Bull and his followers surrendered to U.S. officials at Fort Buford in what is now North Dakota
and were placed on the nearby Standing Rock Indian
reservation. Nine years later, during the Ghost Dance
Movement, Indian police were sent to arrest Sitting Bull, who was accused of encouraging Indian rebellion.
