I"m a distant relative of Union Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick. Posted in Co. before the Civil War, as a Major(?) he was in charge of the building of what later became Fort Lyon. Sedgwick County and the town of Sedgwick, Co. are named in his honor.

Thanks for relaying your connection to Civil War history in Colorado!
