Excerpt from The Indians of the Pike's Peak Region: Including an Account of the Battle of Sand Creek, and of Occurrences in El Paso County, Colorado, During the War With the Cheyennes and Arapahoes, in 1864 and 1868 I took part in the battle of Sand Creek, and in many of the other events which I mention. Where I have no personal knowledge Of any par ticular event, I have taken great pains to obtain the actual facts by a comparison of the statements of persons who I knew lived in the locality at the time. Consequently, I feel assured of the sub stantial accuracy of every account I have given.
