A Civil War veteran, railroad builder, community-founder and benefactor, William Palmer’s life seemed the quintessential 19th century success story. His Quaker roots influenced his desire to make a better world for others while building a new life in the American West. An adventurous railroad entrepreneur, Palmer influenced the development of the Colorado Territory after the Civil War. By all outward appearances he was wealthy and accomplished but his private life would prove to be most bittersweet. Over three years in the making, this is the first-ever video/film biography on Palmer. This is a 60 minute color documentary on DVD produced by Palmer Divide Productions.
