Massacred Railroad Workers Cemetery

An unusual site that I like to promote is the Victoria Railroad Cemetery. The site is where six Kansas Pacific railroad workers who were killed in an Indian raid are buried. There are six stones for each worker, and a larger marker with a plaque denoting the site. It's the only such burial site in Kansas, and I don't know of any similar sites anywhere else.
