How Stories Are Found
Dear Mr. Davis:
My name is Keri Feather. I love to read your historical articles. I was wondering if you were familiar with the battle of Beecher Island? It occurred in Colorado in 1868. The history of Sandy Forsyth, the scout, the Indians, is all very interesting. I have some newsletters from a man in Kansas who is doing research on the descendants, the scouts themselves and weapons used in this fight. They are fun and informative. Would you be interested in them if I was to forward these letters to you?
The reunion of this event is coming up in September. If you think you may be interested in the newsletters I will forward them on. Until then keep the west alive with your great stories and pictures!
Editor’s Note: We are often asked “where do you come up with all of your cover stories?” Sometimes our readers, such as Keri, come up with ideas. True to her word, she forwarded fascinating newsletters, we did some additional research, and this week’s cover story was born. It makes for some exciting reading. We hope you enjoy.
Letters to the Editor are always welcome.
Please limit your submission to 250 words. As always, we reserve the right to edit for length, content, and good taste.
We prefer submittals via email. Please send to:
email@example.com but will accept faxed copies and regular mail. We will, however, screech mightily if and when we receive them because, being lazy, we don’t like to have to retype Letters to the Editor or Press Releases. With email it’s a lot quicker and easier to edit.
If you have an item for The Social Butterfly, you can email that to: TheSocialButterfly@cox.net
Readers are expected to comport themselves at all times as ladies and gentlemen. See as how that’s all that reads The Paper, that should be easy.
We require your name, address, and phone number so we can verify the letter. We will not, however, publish your address or phone number.
Regular mail to:
3643 Grand Avenue, Suite B
San Marcos, Ca. 92078
