As we all know, there are facts, and then there are Internet facts -- like a list of "Historical Events" that took place in Denver as assembled on History.orb. For the most part, the items, which appear to have been mined from various Wikipedia pages, aren't the kind of thing you're likely to have studied in school. But that's why they like them!
