Tragic misunderstanding redux

"Europeans continue to expand their settlements into Indian lands and to fence in their own fields while allowing their animals to forage in the Indians' farmlands. The Indians continued to kill the roaming livestock as just retribution for damages done and to seek vengeance for sleights and injuries, some of which the Europeans were not aware of having inflicted." -- Bernard Bailyn, The Barbarous Years, p. 268
