Deadman’s Grave: A Tale of the Wild West and a Search for the Truth

In 1883, political and personal tensions were high in Grand County, Colorado. On the morning of July 4th, a group of county officials were traveling down the road after breakfast when they were ambushed by masked gunmen. A swift gunfight ensued, the result of which left only one man alive, William Redman. Rumors of the man’s fate were numerous. Where did he go? Did he survive? Over 120 years later, archaeologists stumble onto an unmarked grave which may be his. Find out what happened after the historic Grand County shooting, what was said to have happened to Redman, and the questions that are still left that only archaeology can answer.

Free for members, $5 for non-members.
