Ty’s Reading Question Week 4

The Sand Creek National Historic Site proves that not everything of national significance is from great achievements in history. The conflict over weather Sand Creek was the site of a battle or massacre involved many different stakeholders telling several versions of the same story. Likewise the issue of where the site was actually located involved many of the same stakeholders looking back over one hundred years to find the evidence that proved where the event took place. At times throughout the process several stakeholder were embarrassed by the conjecture and guessing of others as to where the site was located, including the NPS, members of several Native American tribes, landowners, and political officials. How can these conflicts be prevented in the future when sites that involve sensitive history are to be recognized for their significance?
