Eastern Colorado: Sand Creek Massacre

Again, Eastern Colorado is not exactly bustling, but there sure is a lot of history attached to the area.

A few weeks ago, I visited Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site. I learned a lot about about the site. You can learn more about it by clicking on the link above. Here is what the NPS site says: “As 675 cavalrymen came around a prairie bend, the camps of Chiefs Black Kettle, White Antelope, and Left Hand lay in the valley before them.  Chaotic, horrific, tumultuous, and bloody, the events of November 29, 1864 changed the course of history.”

I made a quick panorama of the place. There is not much to see, but if you read about the site it makes it very interesting.
