Colonel John Milton Chivington, Part 1
October, 2001: When this investigation began, the “Reverend Colonel” or “Fighting Parson” had to be given a clean slate. All the denouncements and volumes of praises and allegations were set aside. The inquiry had to start blank since there’s been much written, misconstrued and so full of misconceptions about this man. Everything had to be re-examined and most critical - the sources had to be primary - from diaries, testimonies, official records, letters and previous bona fide investigations.
