Col. Wright’s name correctly removed
I have objected to the changes of creek names and the defacing of the Whitman statue at the college and removing the statue from the Capitol. It is a sign of the times and rebellious, ill-educated, disrespectful children growing into adults.
However, I think Publisher Roger Harnack’s recent column was short-sighted in his summary of the hanging of Qualchan. Col. Wright was wrong (to quote the name of a book.) Qualchan came into Wright’s camp under a flag of truce because he believed his father, Owhi, might be freed.
