More than a century after the U.S. Cavalry killed 400 Sioux at Wounded Knee, S.D., ending the U.S.-Indian wars, the National Park Service has decided to begin taking steps to establish a national historical park on the site of the battle. Park Service officials said Saturday that they plan to order a feasibility study designed to pave the way for possible acquisition of the land. Most of the 330 acres at the site where the massacre began are already part of the Pine Ridge Indian reservation.
