Explore how Colorado Springs officials fought to remain a
“dry town” in “wet times,” the captivating story of how local law enforcement,
concerned citizens and the Gazette newspaper worked to run the KKK out of town in the 1920’s, and an infamous gun battle with train robbers in the streets of downtown.
