Mickey Free
Mickey Free

PERRY OWENS – Although he looked like a fancy dressed dude, Sheriff Perry Owens took out four men in a matter of seconds without receiving a scratch.

BOSE IKARD – Although the chances are excellent you’ve never heard of Bose Ikard, you may discover you knew more about him than you thought.

DAVID KEMP – Kemp is a good example of how Old West towns hired lawmen that would enforce laws in accordance to the desires of the town’s businesses.

CULLEN BAKER – A bully, Cullen used his gun to make up for what he lacked in size.  But, his bullying stopped when he came up against a crippled schoolteacher.

NATHAN MEEKER – Meeker, passionate about temperance and hard work, discovered the hard way that the culture of the Ute Indians wasn’t compatible with his beliefs.

WILLIAM WALLACE – Wallace was a big man who lived a big live.  But he was buried in a small town.

NERVES OF STEEL I & II – Bill Tilghman served more time as a lawman that any other.  As you will see, having nerves of steel was essential to survive.

CATTLE INDUSTRY DECIMATED – Following several years of mild weather, the winter of 1886-1887 was a harsh one that killed as many as 90% of the cattle.

JAILBREAK THWARTED BY WOMAN I & II – Prisoners attempting an escape were no match for Mrs. Woodhurst, the wife of the warden of the Nebraska state prison.

BASS REEVES – Born a slave, Bass Reeves became one of the Oklahoma Territory’s most successful lawmen.

THE COWBOY KID – Have you ever wanted to run off with the circus?  That’s just what “The Cowboy Kid” did.  And he stayed with it all his life.

GRAND DUKE ALEXIS – The young Grand Duke of Russia came to the United States to hunt buffalo.  The grand marshal of the hunt was George Armstrong Custer.  And the Duke’s guide was Buffalo Bill Cody.

FREMONT’S POLITICAL CAREER – We’re all familiar with John Fremont’s explorations mapping the West.  But little is know of his political career, because it  was highlighted by “incorrigible negligence.”

CHARLES BENT – Today, when constituents are dissatisfied with a politician they get him recalled.  In 1847, some constituents were dissatisfied with their governor, but they handled it in a different way. 

PAWNEE SCOUTS – In 1865 the army fielded Company A, Pawnee Scouts, and for thirteen years, they did an unbelievable job of scouting for and protecting soldiers.

DULL KNIFE – Like a number of Indian chiefs, Dull Knife didn’t want to war against the United States.  But the circumstances were such that he couldn’t avoid it.

DAVID J. COOK – Although he tired his best to become a famous lawman, any fame he received was the result of his arresting the last man to be hanged in Denver, Colorado.

MOLLY BRENNAN – Molly’s story is a melodrama about a scorned lover, and a woman who threw herself in the path of a bullet.

ROBERT ZACHARY – Sometimes, it’s the time and location of the crime, not the crime itself that results in the severity of the punishment.

JAMES HOME BOMBED – Once the Pinkertons bombed Mickey Freethe home of the James Brothers, they found public sentiment turned against them.

MICKEY FREE – A man with little redeeming qualities, him own best friend said of him, “He’s half Mexican, half Irish and whole SOB.” (photo is of Mickey Free)
