"Sorting out what happened to George is all the more of a problem since we have to deal with Indian accounts that were often told through translators. What may be have been really told as a second hand account ends up as being related as a story of an eyewitness. Also people are people. Some will tell a story straight up as they saw it. Others will forget, misremember, embellish, and even fabricate. So to put together a coherent picture, you need to weigh some stories more than others and perhaps discount others altogether. More to the point, the selective process depends on the historians and their background as much as anything. In the World War II era when the Greatest Generation was saving the world by force of arms, George was a hero. During the Vietnam era with its suspicion of authority, George was a jerk. And of course, the cycle continues today."
