FOIA The Dead

Joseph Medicine Crow

Joseph Medicine Crow was a widely renowned Native American historian and anthropologist and the last living person to have heard spoken testimony from people at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. His FBI file consists only of a single-page interview he gave to special agents about a friend, a Jeep accident, and an angry mob weilding two-by-fours.
