The chapters here tell in great depth the incidents before and after the Sand Creek Massacre, ending with the destruction of the Cheyenne Dog Soldier village at Summit Springs July 11, 1869. Beginning with the Hungate Massacre near Denver June 11, 1864, the final chapter reports on efforts to find the lost grave of Susanna Alderdice, killed at her rescue at Summit Springs. Within these chapters are found Custer, Cody, the Pony Express, and even Wild Bill Hickok, all with a connection with this five-year Indian war.
