165 years ago today - Jun 4, 1859

U.S. army officer writes: "Saw two kills today from the scene of the Mountain Meadows Massacre [-] One of them was shot through[,] the ball entering the back part of the head and coming out near the right temple. The other had two gashes on the top as if from a sharp knife. They were of young persons."
