Coffee With Jeff #51: The Baron of Arizona

28 mins - Published Sat, Aug 22, 2015 by Jeff Kelley

In the late 19th century, one man attempted to prove to the United States Government that he was the rightful heir to about 12 million acres of prime land in the Arizona Territory. His name was James Reavis and he spent years forging the proper paperwork to show that he was the Baron of Arizona. This is his story. We also talk Pet Rock and the Illuminati.
