Join Mike Bell on Tuesday, January 31, to learn about Maine hero Silas Soule!
A native of Maine and descended from a Mayflower arrival, Silas Soule would grow up to become a freedom fighter and soldier, and in the end, die a martyr's death in far-off Colorado. In the years leading to the Civil War, Soule befriended John Brown. But it was his actions related to the infamous Sand Creek Massacre in 1864 that shook the foundations of Colorado and led to his murder on the streets of Denver. To this day, Soule is honored by native peoples for his courage and integrity. If you love history with intrigue, true love, and skullduggery – this is a tale you won't soon forget.
