Bear River Massacre Historical Marker, updated in the 1980s to the generally
accepted account of the incident. It reads:
Massacre- Very few Indians survived an attack here when P.E. Connor's
California Volunteers trapped and destroyed a band of Northwestern Shoshoni.
local Indians and white travelers along this route led Connor to set
out on a cold winter campaign. More than 400 shoshoni occupied a winter
camp that offered ideal protection in Battle Creak Canyon, But they
suffered a military disaster unmatched in western history when Connor's
Force struck at daybreak. January 29, 1863."
1932 monument that paints the Bear River Massacre in a rather different
light from the modern view.
1953 monument; its emphasis is in keeping with the 1932 monument.
