School News (Vol. 1, No. 7)
Carlisle Barracks, PA
December 1880

Issue Seven opens with Roman Nose explaining how he came to Carlisle after being held captive in St. Augustine for three years. He explains his time there was good because of the kindness of Capt. Pratt. After the editorial about the benefits of speaking English, there was a small letter from a Sioux boy named Phillip, to show how “large boys and girls can learn as well as the small ones.” On page three there are several blurbs about general news, including a mention of the Tallahassee School in Indian Territory, which burned down, and that Capt. Pratt gave Miss Wilson six little Indian boys to play mother to. The final page was written by an unnamed Apache man, who describes the fall of his tribe as white men continued to expand West, eventually causing fighting between tribes and families.
