Sisters of Courage <p>Join Dave Lively as he follows one family through the turmoil of the last half of the 19th century. The Civil War, Westward Expansion, and the Panic of 1893 all take on new meaning with this story of their impact on the Harbison family. Buffeted by the winds of national events, the family started their life all over as Annie and Kittie Harbison homesteaded in a peaceful mountain valley. Come and enjoy their story, leading up to the development (and underdevelopment) of Rocky Mountain National Park. You'll also learn how the Harbison ranch buildings were removed to allow their ranch to become the park's west entrance.</p> <p>This event is being held in partnership with the Center for Colorado Women's History at the Byers-Evans House Museum.</p> 1310 Bannock St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
