Eventually, though, he left Bleeding Kansas for Colorado. And shortly after he arrived there, the Civil War started. Soule answered the call to arms, joining the 1st Colorado Regiment. By 1864, he had moved up in the ranks. On the eve of Sand Creek, he wore a captain’s epaulettes and commanded Company D. 38 Sitting in the cold at Fort Lyon, Soule fumed as he recalled Chivington’s treachery. ” When he heard about this dissension in the ranks, Chivington apparently threatened Soule’s life. But Soule stuck to his guns.

Years earlier, Musgrave, a staunch conservative like Brownback, had been pilloried in the local press for ignoring her home district, including the then-uncertain fate of the Sand Creek site, and instead focusing on the high-profi le national debate over gay marriage. To answer her critics, Musgrave relied in her speech, as Brownback had in his, on a rhetoric of Christian redemption. But instead of apologizing for her own or her nation’s sins, she congratulated the audience (and herself) for mourning the dead: “We’re doing what good people do.

We’re regretting. ” She implied that penitents could shed the sins of history simply by visiting the memorial. 36 The past would not be laid to rest so easily. Silas Soule’s struggles with guilt and redemption—individual, collective, national—still shrouded the memorial at its opening gala. Soule, who at Sand Creek refused to order the men he commanded to fire, worried afterward that the attack could only be called a massacre. By early December 1864, news of Soule’s and other officers’ concerns about Sand Creek had reached Denver.
