Abstract:

The dust around the site of the Sand Creek Massacre settled long ago. The blood spilled there no longer stains the ground. But the echoes of rifle shots, the death cries of the slain, and the words of accusation and slander reverberate yet - 150 years after the battle. What really happened at Sand Creek, Colorado? Were the Native American inhabitants of the village hapless victims or aggressive fighters? How did the War Between the States influence hostilities between people groups on the plains? Was Civil War hero Colonel John Chivington a ruthless murderer of innocent women and children, or a political scapegoat? Blood at Sand Creek reaches conclusions that will surprise some. Using rare documents, sworn affidavits, and military records, historian Bob Scott reexamines the fateful battle. Under his masterful pen, the drama and intrigue of the Sand Creek Massacre unfolds. Its powerful leading characters live again in these pages, inviting you to find truth amid the tragedy in the Blood at Sand Creek -- Back cover.
