|June 21, 1860 - Congress approves the Maxwell Land Grant, 1,714,765 acres granted by the Mexican government to Charles Beaubien in 1841 and later acquired by Lucien B. Maxwell who married Beaubien's daughter Luz. The Maxwells later bought out other family members and eventually sold the grant to foreign investors in 1872. Maxwell, who many said was a very generous man, eventually died broke. He allowed many squatters to establish homes on the grant and when the new owners began evicting them the Colfax County War erupted.|
