with Heather Cox Richardson, Boston College
 
On December 29, 1890, as Democrats and Republicans battled for political hegemony in Washington and for absolute control over a burgeoning America, a U.S. cavalry regiment hunted down and killed innocent Lakota men, women and children in the Wounded Knee Massacre. Heather Cox Richardson will reveal how a toxic mix of partisan politics, economics and rhetoric in Washington sparked the deadly events at Wounded Knee, and explore how the massacre illuminates the dangers of American political polarization, both in 1890 and today.
