Vasily - I have appreciated your excellent pictures of Indian sites for the last few years. I appearantly have been following in your footsteps here at the Little Bighorn, Wounded Knee and the Grattan massacre site. In some cases I have uploaded supplemental pictures.
A year or so ago the National Park Service opened the overlook of the Sand Creek Massacre site near Chivington in Southeast Colorado. Have you been there yet?
The red granite markers at the Little Bighorn Battlefield moved me deeply.
Thank you so much. Are you interested in history of Indian Wars?
Yeah, I got interested about 15 years ago when I re-read Dee Brown's 'Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee'.
I have been travelling to massacre sites mostly. You can see my pix of Indian Island (Eureka, CA), Bloody Island (Upper Lake, CA), Hayfork Massacre (Southeast of Hayfork, CA), Kent State Massacre (Kent, OH).
BTW I got the correct location of the Washita Massacre site from a Ranger at Sand Creek this year and plan to go there to pay my respects on my next trip to the States.
These pix are all tagged with 'Massacre'. I am going to add 'Native American' and 'American Indian' to the appropriate ones.
I am intending to travel through some of the above named sites in 3mths time including Grattan, Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee. I shall also be visiting the Fetterman Massacre site, can you, Vasily or MaxFarrar give me any more pointers to places to visit in the MT, WY or CO area. i would be truly grateful.
Hi. I reccomend you to visit Fort Robinson in Nebraska, Fort Bent and/or Sand Creek in CO, Wagon Box fight site (it's near Fetterman Massacre site), Rosebud battlefield in MT. Big Foot Trail in SD.
Vasily's suggestions are good ones. Additionally: three years ago I followed the Nez Perce Trail from the Wallowa Valley,Oregon to the Whitebird Battlefield, the Heart of the Monster, Idaho, the Trail to the Buffalo, Idaho, Fort Fizzle, Big Hole Battlefield, Montana, Canyon Creek Battlefield, Montana, and finally, Bear's Paw Battlefield where Chief Joseph surrendered within sight of Canada. (Note: You need a high-clearance vehicle to drive the Lolo Motorway which closely follows The Trail to the Buffalo. Do not try it in your car.) And down in Missouri there is the Trail of Tears State Park.
Hello Max. I'm happy to get a word from you) How are you? Where did you travel?
