Background about this Web History
This presentation is based on original research in 2004-2005 by Col Dave Hughes, who lives in ‘Old Colorado City’ Colorado who is the first historian of the Civil War in the West to discover and document the identity and role of all 38 West Point Graduates plus 6 ex-cadets who engaged in the New Mexico fighting on both sides. And who has also detailed the role Colorado City had during the Civil War, displaying it in the Old Colorado City History Center, Colorado Springs.
Many of the facts presented are from prior studies of the Civil War and Glorieta. But major findings also came from the online Data Bases of West Point, and the Cullum Register of graduates. Much will be added to this study in subsequent versions. It’s History in progress. Copyright, Dave Hughes, Colo Spgs, 2005
