PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Three life-shattering events ranging from 1904-1921 that resulted in tremendous loss of life in Pueblo provide a backdrop for scientists seeking mass graves in Roselawn Cemetery.
Students from the Colorado School of Mines, led by archaeologist Michelle Slaughter, are searching the oldest portion of the cemetery for mass graves that may have served as the final resting places for many who died during the Great Flood of 1921, the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and a train wreck in 1904.
