Annotation On January 29, 1863, over two hundred Shoshoni men, women and children died on the banks of the Bear River, massacred by volunteer soldiers from California led by Colonel Patrick E. Connor. Bear River was one of the first major and one of the largest Indian massacres in the Trans-Mississippi West. The massacre has gone almost unnoticed since it occurred during the Civil War when national attention was focused on that conflict and the death of the Shoshoni Indians in a remote corner of the West was only of passing interest. For junior and senior high and adult readers.
