In March 1824 a group of angry and intoxicated settlers brutally murdered nine Indians camping along a tributary of Fall Creek in Indiana. The carnage was recounted in lurid detail in the contemporary press and the events that followed sparked a national sensation. Although violence between settlers and Native Americans was not unusual during the early nineteenth century, in this particular incident the white men responsible were singled out and hunted down, brought to trial, convicted by a jury of their neighbors, and, for the first time under American law, were sentenced to death and executed for the murder of Native Americans.
