There were 10 years of attacks and reprisals. In 1860 about 1,000 warriors attacked the fort. The soldiers responded by killing livestock and burning crops, starvation a real possibility. In 1861 the government promised rations and both soldiers and Navajo celebrated the treaty with horse racing. Unfortunately, at the end of the race an army soldier accused of cheating was declared the winner. The Navajo were outraged and a battle ensued where 30 Navajo were killed.
Man o' War was a racehorse who captured the hearts of America in a time when horse racing was at it's prime. He is considered the best; the champion of champions. Even to this day, some 90 years after he lived, and some 60 years after his death, he is considered the greatest horse to ever live, or set four hooves on a racetrack. The only reason he didn't win the Triple Crown was because his owner refused to enter him in the Kentucky Derby. He lost only once in a 21 race career. The only race he lost, was to a horse named Upset. When the race started, his back was facing the finish line and by the time he turned around the horses were pretty far away. Despite this, Man o' War still managed second place. Among his children is the champion and Triple Crown winner, War Admiral. He is the grandsire of Seabiscuit, and he still appears in many of the Pedigrees of famous racehorses even to this day. He is the horse that most racers are compared to. He is the "meterstick" of how great a racehorse is. He truly is "da mostest hoss ya Eva did see."
According to the US Census Bureau, among the general population, bowling is the most commonly played sport in America (43 million), followed by billiards (29 million), basketball (24 million), golf (23 million), and baseball/softball (24 million). According to the NCAA, for organized college sports, football is the clear winner, followed by baseball/softball, track and field, soccer, basketball, cross-country running, and swimming/diving. Football is also the #1 organized sport in high school, followed by basketball, track & field, baseball/softball, soccer, and cross-country. Football is even a bigger winner when you consider that it is played almost entirely by male students, whereas the other sports include both male and female athletes. However, tackle football is played almost entirely in schools or professional leagues; like other contact sports, it is not a popular amateur sport among adults.
