Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site

Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site

In the 19th century, the United States' movement westward caused many issues with the Native Americans. The Sand Creek Massacre is an example and is today being rembered as a National Historic Site. Estimates account for hundreds of Native Americans and fifteen to twenty militia men killed in the attack. The site offers trails, a visitors center, and other outlets for research on this topic.
