Lawmakers introduce bill to rescind 20 Medals of Honor issued in connection with a massacre of Native Americans
The Remove the Stain Act was introduced Tuesday by US. Reps. Denny Heck (D-Washington), Deb Haaland (D-New Mexico), and Paul Cook (R-California). It was named for the U.S. military’s massacre of more than 200 Lakota Indians, confined to a camp near Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota, on Dec. 29, 1890.
