Old Eagle (Amos Clown), an Itazipcho or Sansarc Sioux warrior, fought under Chief Spotted Eagle, fighting Sansarc leader at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Old Eagle was only 13 that summer. He and his brother Bear Horns first fought in the defense of the Indian village against Major Reno’s attack, in which Bear Horns killed a soldier and took his weapons.
“In 1940 when I met him, he was suffering along with most other Sioux in the dust-bowl depression. At 77, he was stalwart enough to suggest an earlier powerful physique.” – David Humphreys Miller, Thunder Butte, SD 1940
