The History of Washita Massacre

CATC President Henrietta Mann, President Randy Beutler and Dr. Sunu Kodumthara will be presenting on the history of the massacre that took place at the nationally recognized Washita Battlefield National Historic Site. The lectures will take place on the Weatherford Campus tonight - SCI-Science Room: 208 at 6pm.

The site protects and interprets the setting along the Washita River where Lt. Col. George A. Custer led the 7th U.S. Cavalry on a surprise dawn attack against the Southern Cheyenne village of Peace Chief Black Kettle on November 27, 1868.
