This blog contains history, photos, etc. related to Idaho from the late 1800's/early 1900's. My mother, Brenda Steunenberg Richards, was born in ID. Much of it pertains to the assassination of my great grandfather, Gov. Frank Steunenberg, the trial of Bill Haywood & grew out of the 100 year commemorations of those events. Along the way I toss in a bit of the Wild West, old guns, radios, military, etc. Your comments are welcomed. If using my images, please just ASK. Thank you.
Does anyone know the exact location on a map, GPS coordinates and/or what other structures/landmarks/mines may be nearby today? I am trying to get a more accurate fix on the site.
From the webpage description: The Independence, Colorado train station was located on this spot in the early 1900s. Harry Orchard planted a bomb underneath the train station platform, set the trip wire about 100 yards out along the railroad track, and when the train came in and the men were congregating on the platform, the train broke the trip wire and set off the bomb.
