Storyline

Doug and Tony are transported to the summer of 1876 and witness soldiers slaughtered by Indians in the middle of the desert. They are hunted and captured by three Indians; however Doug is rescued by the Trumpeter Tim that survived the massacre and is bringing a dispatch from General Crook to General George Armstrong Custer. Doug escapes but the leader of the Indians, Crazy Horse, brings Tony to the Indian camp to get information about the "Yellow Hair". Meanwhile, the Time Tunnel personnel summon the specialist in the Indian Wars period and Sioux descendent Dr. Charles Whitebird to provide information about the location. The researcher advises that the place is Montana and the day is the eve of the day of The Battle of the Little Bighorn, where Custer and the 7th Cavalry Regiment where defeated and annihilated by the Indians led by Sitting Bull. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

George Armstrong Custer is consistently referred to as "General Custer" in 1876, when in fact he was a lieutenant colonel. Custer achieved a brevet (temporary) rank of major general during the U.S. Civil War in the early 1860s. Following the war's end in 1865, he was reduced rank to captain, later promoted to lieutenant colonel, which rank he held at the time of his death at the Little Big Horn. See more »

Doug and Tony are transported to the summer of 1876 and witness soldiers slaughtered by Indians in the middle of the desert. They are hunted and captured by three Indians; however Doug is rescued by the Trumpeter Tim that survived the massacre and is bringing a dispatch from General Crook to General George Armstrong Custer. Doug escapes but the leader of the Indians, Crazy Horse, brings Tony to the Indian camp to get information about the "Yellow Hair". Meanwhile, the Time Tunnel personnel summon the specialist in the Indian Wars period and Sioux descendant Dr. Charles Whitebird to provide information about the location. The researcher advises that the place is Montana and the day is the eve of the day of The Battle of the Little Bighorn, where Custer and the 7th Cavalry Regiment where defeated and annihilated by the Indians led by Sitting Bull.

"Massacre" is among the weakest episodes of The Time Tunnel. Based in the defeat of the United States Army led by General Custer in The Battle of the Little Bighorn, this episode is totally unrealistic, with Tony never being wounded or murdered by Crazy Horse in a period of Indian Wars. My vote is six.
