The Confederate under Sibley were moving north to take the Denver gold fields supposedly for the rebs but actually Sublet wanted it to start a country in AZ NM and Chihuahua. Union forces included 1st Colorado volunteers whose F co. Was actually a mounted unit (I was in a reenactment unit in the 80s). They stopped the rebs at Glorieta Pass in northern Nm.

So how come the loser Denver police didn’t stop them?

These cops are not earning their pay and benefits.

The chaindog cops were ordered to stand down by the corrupt mayor hancock, I would guess. “Just following orders.”

The Hancock/Pazen administration have turned the city over to the animals. They tried fighting Antifa but quit.

If you are thinking about relocating a business, don't think Colorado. COVID stopped this year's legislature. Next year, the Democrats will destroy everything that has made Colorado business friendly for the last 40 years.

Why is it always the West side of any town/city happens to be the one with all the problems? Any place I’ve ever lived it was either the West side or the East side, Pueblo being one of them.

I have yet to see them build one good thing.

Well, they've successfully built up the numbers of Americans getting their concealed carry permits and the numbers of gun purchases.
So, there is that.
