Stagecoach Attacked Historical Vignette
Painting - Acrylic On Wood
After the Sand Creek Massacre in Colorado in the early 1860s, in which sleeping Cheyenne villagers were slaughtered by soldiers, Wyoming's tribes, including the Arapaho, Ute, and others, became more determined to keep white settlers from taking over their hunting grounds. The artist has seen the remote locations along the Overland Trail where warriors attacked stage coaches, burned stage stations, and engaged in battles with solders stationed at a rugged fort along Sage Creek. This is one of the historical vignettes from Dawn's River Mural.
