THE RESURRECTION OF AURARIA (excerpt 1)
"Autumn arrived warm and golden in 1858. William Greeneberry Russell and his party of Georgians (including his veteran prospector brothers, Levi and Joseph Oliver) could see the golden flashes of aspen 20 miles away. Even better, they saw teases of gold in the sands of the South Platte River.... That summer, they [had] made the South Platte strike that launched the Colorado Gold Rush." -- Source: Tom Noel, EMPIRE magazine, 1 March 1997.
