Wisherd THEi NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY'S WAGON IN CANON DEL MUERTO In connection with its work in the Chaco Canyon region, The Society sent a photographic party into the canyons of northeastern Arizona. Photograph by Earl II. Morris BULLET MARKS IN MASSACRE CAVE When the Navajo who had not fallen before the first volleys crawled between and behind the blocks of stone which line the front of the cave, riflemen on the ledge high above them began shooting against the rear wall, depending upon deflected bullets to complete the work of extermination (see text, page 263). Although more than a century has passed since the Spaniards splashed their lead against the cliff, the marks are as white and fresh as if made but yesterday.
