One bullet can make a man a hero… or a casualty.

Colorado Confederates (Part 2)

Thanks to the research of Mr. Jack R. Box, the names of several Confederate veterans have been preserved in the archives. The following is a list of those who are buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Leadville, Colorado.

001 A  C  DAVIS
002 PAUL  HENEY
003 LOUIS  HESS
004 FRANK  KEITING
005 GEO  E  KELLE
006 CHARLES  MILBURN
007 JAMES  R  MILBURN
008 JACK  OMOHOUDRO (TEXAS JACK)
009 J  H  ROBINSON
010 ALFRED  SHULTZ
011 W J SLOAN
012 JOHN  J  WITZMANN
 
Apparently, these Civil War vets are buried there, but only one has a headstone marker, that of Texas Jack. I will write more about this fascinating character in later blogs. For more information, please visit:
