Captain Bentley Mason finally arrived at Fort Collins in Northern Colorado. His orders were to escort a Union payroll from Collins to Fort Winston in Arizona, a two hundred mile journey through dangerous and hostile territory. However this man was not the good Captain. This man was Benson Krowley, a war criminal, thief and murderer. He and his brother Willard were the leaders of a ruthless rebel unit known as the “Krowley Kin and Klan.”
Five days earlier Willard had captured the real Captain Mason, while he was in route to Fort Collins. Benson, with the mob cheering him on of course, cut just one side of the Captain’s throat, then watched and laughed as the Captain slowly bled to death. When Willard realized what the Captain’s orders were he conceived a diabolical plan to add another bloody massacre to his resume.
The Krowleys consisted of young and old low-life confederate thieves; mad men and lunatics, but most were racist murderers; and a few idiots, of which sixteen were Kin to the Krowley brothers in one way or another. Led by Willard’s ruthless mind, these rebellious men had plundered, robbed and murdered a countless number of migrating blacks and immigrants, making sure that the young women receive a “treat” before they kill them. The Krowley motto was; “No Witness No Crime.”
