Historical site officially opens at Sand Creek
More than 142 years have passed since Colorado militia soldiers, in a deadly onslaught of bullets and blows, attacked this peaceful encampment--killing some 160 people, mostly women, children and the elderly--about 30 miles northeast of Eads. The attack came while most of the men of the village were away hunting.
On Saturday morning, the land was dedicated a national historic site on a field about 1 mile south of where the massacre took place.
