Wild West

Whether on the right or the wrong side of the law, in the nineteenth century, Colorado was not for the faint of heart. People came west seeking fortune or opportunity, and it is no secret that some of the most famous Wild West characters rolled through the Colorado territory at one point or another. Led by returning presenter and historian, Randi Samuelson-Brown, this talk will center on the establishment of Denver, the discovery of gold, Colorado during the Civil War, the Confederate Gold Field Plot, and other dubious happenings and characters.
