Re: Colfax La Massacre of 1873

Additional material and sources have been added to the Wikipedia article "Colfax Massacre". In addition, an unsourced entry at "Colfax, Louisiana" on Wikipedia notes that "plans are underway" to have a memorial and interpretation at the courthouse site about the events of that Easter Sunday in 1873. I put a note on the Talk page asking if this was a state, local or Federal effort. It deserves to be a National Historic Landmark. The current courthouse was built in 1962, before there were laws about archaeological investigation. While the site has been disturbed, an archaeological study would be valuable.
