“The Gray Ghosts of Colorado” Will Now Be a Four Book Series

Many of you have been following and awaiting the release of my book “The Gray Ghosts of Colorado” which documents the suppressed early history, and the southern roots of the State of Colorado.

My project which began as a history of “The Reynolds Gang” has grown to include the rise of the secessionist faction in Colorado Territory, the Confederate underground network, Colonel Heffiner’s Mace’s Hole rebel army, and attempted Confederate incursions by Captain George Madison and Lt. Colonel Charlie Harrison.

The inclusion of so much new, pertinent material has resulted in numerous delays and rewrites.  As a result,  I have decided to split “The Gray Ghosts of Colorado” into a four book series, which will accomplish two goals- It will allow me to cover the subject matter in greater detail,  and it will allow the subject matter to be introduced to the reader in an easier to read,  chronological format that clearly ties the divergent paths of the topics together.

Splitting “The Gray Ghosts of Colorado” into four smaller books will require a considerable amount of “reworking” of the project,  and as of now,  I can not estimate a date of publication for the first book in the series.

“The Gray Ghosts of Colorado” series will consist of:

Book I- “The Copperheads” The southern roots of Colorado and the secessionist faction 1860-1865

Book II- “Pioneers to Pariahs” A true history of the mass exodus of Colorado’s southern-born pioneers,  a veritable “who’s who” of Colorado’s founding fathers, following the Battle of Glorieta Pass in New Mexico,  Confederate units composed of Colorado exiles and their battles,  and Confederate incursions into Colorado Territory in 1862-1863.

Book III- “The Reynolds Gang” A true history of Company A,  Wells’ Battalion,  3rd Texas Cavalry Regiment, CSA, their 1864 raids into New Mexico and Colorado,  how they became known as “The Reynolds Gang”, the sham trial and botched execution of some of Company A’s members,  and the hunt for their buried treasure which continues today.

Book IV- A collection of maps,  rosters,  appendices, and overall bibliography for the entire series.

Stay tuned for updates and thank you for your patience! This story deserves to be told correctly and in it’s entirety, and that will take a bit more time!
