About Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site

Location:

Open April 1 through December 1 in 2009 from 9:00-4:00 daily.

History:

The Sand Creek Massacre, also known as the Battle of Sand Creek, and the Chivington Massacre. About 120 miles southeast of Denver, the Colorado militia troops attacked an encampment of Cheyenne and Arapahoe American Indians. These American Indians believed that they were under the protection of the U.S. Government because they had already surrendered themselves. The militia slaughtered primarily women, children, and older men in the encampment and then displayed the body parts of their victims in a theater in Denver, which was well-received. Later, however, the scandal was publicized.

Paranormal Activities Reported:

Apparitions of Native American women, and children have been sighted especially on the anniversary of the Sand Creek Massacre. The apparitions are said to appear only briefly and then dissolve.
