Papers from the 2013 Pikes Peak Regional History Symposium are presented here in chronological order, presenting details on murders in the region from 1761 to 1999. Several chapters deal with the Sand Creek Massacre and the families involved, including the Nathan Hungate family, as well as the treaty of the Little Arkansas River in 1865, which granted lands in reparation for the Sand Creek Massacre. Other subjects include the 1761 Comanche massacre, the Gunnison massacre, the Espinosa brothers, and the Columbine school shooting. B&w historical photos and illustrations are included.
