Horace Greeley arrives in Denver on his tour of the West

Horace Greeley, detail
06/06/1859
Horace Greeley arrived in Denver, Colorado, less than a month after he had left New York City on May 9, 1859. He then visited Utah, where he interviewed Brigham Young, and then made his way to San Francisco where he took ship for his return to New York. His travels were recorded famously in his letters to the New York Tribune and he wrote a book on his travels soon after he returned. (By John Osborne)
