Not just militia, such as Chivington's Colorado volunteers who massacred the Arapahoe and the Cheyenne at Sand Creek,.

The treachery of the treaty agents, and the perfidy of the American congress by refusing to ratify most treaties signed by their own agents, and our ancestors dispossessed us by requiring we abide the terms of treaties they didn't have to honor.
