The Bear River Battle and Aftermath

I noticed this article in the Deseret News, which is a good recounting of the  Battle of Bear River or Bear River Massacre.  On this date it is reported 300 Native Americans were killed.  This is more than any other massacre of Native Americans in a single day.  I previously wrote a blog about the massacre:
However this article also deals with the aftermath.  It talks of the dream they had to go to the Mormons, and the baptism of over 1200.  The making of a ward at Washakie, Utah.  This is a very proud heritage.
