Known for mythical tales of sharpshooters and ghosts, Devil’s Den was in fact a fierce battleground for which more than 5,000 men fought. But by 1895, Devil’s Den had evolved into a popular tourist attraction where visitors danced, drank and had their photos taken. Preservation eventually won the day, but not before a lifetime’s worth of stories were told by those involved. Adelman covers the horrific fighting, the historic photos, and the impressive geology.
