Legacy Projects > Fall Creek Massacre Fall Creek Massacre

This video documentary tells the story of the Fall Creek Massacre, the murder of nine Native Americans by white settlers in Madison County, Indiana on March 22, 1824. It focuses on the arrest of the perpetrators and their subsequent trials and executions. This was the first documented case in which white Americans were convicted, sentenced to capital punishment and executed for the murder of Native Americans, under the laws of the United States. These are critical issues for understanding and appreciating the early history of our state and western expansion.
