Please join us for a visit with Colorado historian and author, Dr. Jeff Broome. A member of OCTA, Jeff is a leading historian on the subject of Indian wars and the author of four books on the Central Plains Indian war.
His most recent book, Indian Raids and Massacres: Essays on the Central Plains Indian War, published in 2020, covered incidents in Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska from 1864-1870 and was the feature of one of our events last year.
In this year’s event, Jeff will delve further into the causes of the Sand Creek Massacre, describe the tragic events surrounding the capture and death of Clara Blinn and her son, and provide further insights into incidents described in his most recent book. He will also share some fascinating “lessons learned” in the historical research he has undertaken over the past 26 years.
