RE: [civilwarwest] Jack Ehmer - Sand Creek
- Unfortunately Sand Creek and Col. Chivington *were* part of the Civil War: Chivington had been the hero of Glorieta Pass. And the Third Colorado was a United States Volunteer Cavalry outfit, fully mustered and entitled to call themselves a part of the Grand Army of the Republic as was the Twentieth Maine.
