About the Book
First book in a four-part series that documents the remarkable, suppressed early history of Colorado Territory, its southern origins, socio-political climate of 1858-1861, the rise of the secessionist movement and its leaders, and the Colorado pioneers who found themselves exiled from the territory they helped create due to their political beliefs. "The Gray Ghosts of Colorado" series is the first, to-date, in-depth, work focusing solely on the Coloradans who fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. This series is the culmination of seven years worth of research, both scholarly and field, on one of the Civil War's most obscure topics. Book format: 8X10 softcover, 224 pages, numerous photos.
