Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

The dust around the site of the Sand Creek Massacre settled long ago.  The blood spilled there no longer stains the groud.  But the echoes of rifle shots, the death cries of the slain and the words of accusation and slander reverberate yet, more than one hundred fifty years after the battle. What really happened at Sand Creek, Colorado?  Using rare documents, sworn affidavits and military records, historian Bob Scott reexamines the fateful battle and comes to some surprising conclusions.

Synopsis:

The dust at Sand Creek settled long ago. But 150 years after the infamous event people still wonder what really happened? Were the inhabitants of the village victims or hostile aggressors? Was Colonel John Chivington a ruthless murderer or political scapegoat? Blood at Sand Creek reaches conclusions that will surprise some. Using rare documents, affidavits, and military records, historian Bob Scott reexamines the battle.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [223]-224) and index.
