A Quick History of Leadville chronicles the fascinating history of Leadville, Colorado -- the boom town of boom towns -- from the 1860s to the present. Every page brings to life the arrival of the first prospectors, the booming mining era, the near mythical saga of the Tabors, the silver crash, the Crystal Carnival, the anarchy caused by miners' strikes, the rise and fall of the railroads, Camp Hale and the famous 10th Mountain Division, Climax's rise and demise, the Environmental Protection Agency's cleanup efforts, and much more. Over ninety photographs and illustrations, many published for the first time in this book, allow the reader to see Leadville's unparalleled history.
