Although you were a soldier in the Union Army and my ancestors in the Confederate Army, I salute you Sir in your stand for what was right and honorable with regards to the Massacre at Big Sandy.

A brave, strong young man. A wonderful example of humanity at it's finest. What a shame his life ended so early and in such a cowardly way. Your ideas live on.

Thank you for knowing right from wrong and having the courage to stand against those who did not. Your actions, and the actions of your men, will never be forgotten.

One of my heros & a good man. I have visited Riverside. He deserves a better place in history somewhere & a restored monument. Perhaps at Sand Creek. Denver does not seem to care.

You truly were a man of honor who chose the hard right over the easy wrong. History has all but forgotten you but those of us who have heard your story will never forget you.

Captain Silas S. Soule was the REAL HERO of Sand Creek for the moral courage to do the right thing. May we all learn from his story and may the U.S. Government do the honorable thing in all its dealings with people.

A very brave man who was not afraid to stand up against wrong and hatred and pregidous against native americans. He had a monument in a Denver park at one time but politics saw that it was removed. He was killed for defending what he did. His actions changed the way people thought about the way indians were treated from that time on.

Brave for not only Sand Creek, but his liberation activities in "Bloody Kansas." Funny too, he fooled so many people with his fake Irish accent, the Denver paper actually printed in his obituary that he was Irish. No wonder Hersa (and many others in Colorado) liked him.

Remarkable man! You have my respect and I would have followed you. You went with honor and courage. You are the gold lining to the cloud over Sand Creek. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. Yes peacemakers wear the uniform of war. It doesn't mean they are routhless killers all. Many of them are there to instill peace at the front lines. They are the incredably brave who believe in the RIGHT thing, and try to make it happen, not the polictacally correct thing. Or the armchair peacechanters from far away and aways after the fact. These men are the history makers. They change the way people think and that's a hard and dangerous thing to do sometimes but needed.

I'm lookin after your model 1860 cavalry sword. We've been moving it down through the family as a reminder to the responsibility each of us have to uphold the code of Love, Courage, and Honor, in a world that has all but forgotten it. Walk your path home in the sun Friend.

It was a good day to die. I will do my best to make your death matter, nearly 150 years later. There are many men currently reliving your story - being asked to kill innocent people by their government. You had a choice and you were true to yourself and your humanity. Others may still learn by your example.

Thank you for having the strength of character to do what was right.
