Sand Creek Massacre

Chief Niwot and an estimated 70–500 Native Americans, about two-thirds of whom were women and children, died at the hands of Colorado troops, including officers and men from Boulder, at the Sand Creek Massacre. Colonel John Chivington gained infamy for leading a 700-man force of the Colorado Territory militia at the massacre in November 1864.
