The BGN received six formal proposals from 2019 to 2022 to rename Mount Evans, which was named after John Evans, the Territorial Governor of Colorado from 1862 to 1865. Evans has been closely linked to the Sand Creek Massacre. On November 29, 1864, U.S. soldiers attacked an encampment of approximately 750 Native people. As they fled, many were wounded and killed. Well over half of the 230 dead were women and children. The full press release is here.
