    Welcome to the forums, beautifulenglish!

    Please give us some context for your 'soldier with wounded knee' reference.

    In the US, the term 'wounded knee' is almost exclusively associated with an infamous conflict between the US Cavalry and the Lakota Indian tribe.

    Where did you hear the 'idiom'?

    Cheers,
    Amigo
