Of course then you have James Loewen who says that this simply did not happen. I heard him speak at our university last year and the guy rubbed me the wrong way from the get-go. He said the whole story of this transaction was a "myth" and that it was one of those stories the Europeans told to make the Native Americans look stupid.

If I did the link correctly, this is a short paper I wrote after having listened to Dr. Loewen's lecture and researching it further:
