We All Lose

Elizabeth, wife of Eli Stroud, killed in the Ogley Massacre.

Buried in the grave on the right.

I too lost someone that day.

You call him Savannah Jack.

I called him husband.

Massacre when the “settlers” lose.

To us, they are invaders.

Our history tells this story differently.

Sadly it ends the same.

We all lose.
