Fort Wicked Historical Marker

Share article to

This marker stands near the place in Logan County (northeast Colorado) where a violent clash occurred between settlers Holon and Matilda Godfrey and Cheyenne and Arapaho warriors in January 1865. The warriors attacked the Godfreys' stage stop as part of retaliation for the Sand Creek Massacre of November 1864, in which Colorado troops murdered more than 200 Cheyenne and Arapaho, many of them women and children.
