This action was based upon the fact that although Case was a longtime friend of the Sioux, he had surrendered without a fight the tribe’s claims to the Powder River hunting grounds and more than 25 million acres of land outside the Great Sioux Reservation reserved to the Sioux in the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty. Case had also needlessly conceded government payments of $57 million in offsets, based on the 1877 value of the Black Hills.
