Over one hundred years ago, Luella Shaw wrote down the stories told to her by Watson S. Coburn, Alston Knox Shaw, and John Patterson, all of whom were early-day Colorado pioneers. She felt their stories should be recorded for posterity; and, honoring her own strong generational connection to Colorado - maternal and paternal, Luella allowed Coburn, Shaw and Patterson to tell it like it "was." All three men had served under Colonel John M. Chivington at "The Battle of Sand Creek," renamed "The Massacre at Sand Creek" after some of those present related horrific tales. The personal narratives of these men include stories about Sand Creek, as well as tales about other pioneers, outlaws, Native Americans, and hardships endured during their time. This reprint of True History of Some of the Pioneers of Colorado makes this rare work available to everyone.
