Edward Wynkoop
Soldier and Indian Agent

                                 By Nancy Oswald

Edward 'Ned' Wynkoop came west to Denver in the very early days of that city. In the American Civil War he served as an officer and saw action at the Battle of Gloreita Pass. 

He may be best known for his role in the investigation and condemnation of Col. John Chivington following the Sand Creek Massacre. Wynkoop wasn't present at the attack and was appalled at the eye-witness accounts he heard during his investigation. In 1866, he became an Indian agent for the Southern Cheyennes and Arapaho, but resigned from that post following the Battle of Washita River. He died in Santa Fe in 1891.

Nancy Oswald adds Edward Wynkoop: Soldier and Indian Agent to the Now You Know Bio series as Number Seventeen.

Nancy is the author of three historical novels: Nothing Here But Stones, Hard Face Moon, and Rescue in Poverty Gulch.
