November 29, 1864

The Sand Creek Massacre - At Sand Creek on November 29, 1864, Colonel John Chivington led the Colorado Volunteers in a dawn attack on Black Kettle and his band, who had been told they would be safe on this desolate reservation in what was to be the state of Colorado. Around five hundred Cheyenne men, but mostly women and children were raped, slaughtered, and their corpses grotesquely mutilated.
