My comments: The blog publisher says the incident is minimized in the record of history. But it says they gave land grants to the families of the slain soldiers, so – in my mind - the authority gave credit where credit was due. It's better to not get any mention in history than to serve faithfully and then have your family disregarded as if you didn't do anything at all. The family who lost a member who died as a valiant soldier more often than not, probably depended on that person for their own survival. It's the least the country's leaders could do.
History of the Indian army (as in India, not Native Americans). Interesting history.
