THIS DATE IN ALASKA HISTORY:  February 16, 1851 -
Lieutenant J. J. Barnard of the British Navy was killed at Nulato while on a search for the lost Arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin. "Searching for the missing explorer along the Bering Sea coastline, Lieutenant Franklin heard rumors of white men around the village of Nulato; up the Yukon River. Barnard and the rest of his search party traveled to Nulato to investigate but discovered the rumors were just that; rumors. The search party spent the night at the Russian trading post in Nulato before heading back to their ship. That evening, a group of hostile Koyokuk Indians attacked the village and trading post killing Lieutenant Barnard and most of the Nulato Indians. This has come to be known as the Nulato Massacre."
