January 19, 1847 A violent mob attacked a Taos home that Charles Bent was visiting. They murdered his guards, and then killed and scalped Charles Bent. Dragging Bent's mangled body through the streets of Taos, the mob called for a full-scale rebellion against the American occupation, and by the end of the evening, 15 other Americans had been killed. Those who survived fled to Santa Fe to sound the alarm. Within two weeks, the American Colonel Sterling Price had quelled the rebellion and executed the ringleaders. With the end of the Mexican War in 1848, New Mexico and all the rest of Mexico's old Northern frontier became the American Southwest.
