The April 2014 line-up:
TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA FOUNDED – On April 1, 1877, Ed Schieffelin decided to go prospecting in southern Arizona. Everyone though he was a fool.
WILLIAM BRADY – When Billy the Kid and his regulators killed Sheriff William Brady, because of the way it happened, Billy started loosing support.
JOHN WEBB – While in jail for murder, John refused to be broken out of jail…that is the first time it was offered, not the second time.
ESTHER MORRIS – Although Esther has been celebrated as an early women’s movement hero, she was in no way radical.
RICHARDSON/LOVING GUNFIGHT – One of Dodge City’s most famous gunfights, in reality it was just one more fight over a woman.
EDWARD CASH – Cash was the center of a stolen cattle ring. Although his neighbors couldn’t prove it in court, they were able to bring an end to the stolen cattle.
BUD FRAZER – Bud got into three gunfights with the same man…Killer Jim Miller. In the third one, Miller finished it with a shotgun.
BUTCH CASSIDY – Butch was probably the least likely looking and acting head of a bandit gang. But, he sure did a great job of leading outlaws.
RACIAL SLUR – Today a racial slur would result in a lawsuit. In 1881, it resulted in the death of four men.
LEVI STRAUSS – Not all men made their fortune working the gold fields of California. One man who made it elsewhere was a Bavarian immigrant.
THE MADAMS SHOOTOUT – In Old West El Paso there was more than one place to work, but the soiled doves didn’t want to change madams.
DENVER’S FIRE – As with most tragedies, Denver’s fire brought out the best and the worst from men.
WYATT EARP FIRED – While a deputy in Wichita, Wyatt held up for his boss and ended up being fired.
DEACON JIM MILLER – Jim Miller man was known as Deacon Miller and Killer Miller. And both names were correct.
BATTLE OF SAN JACINTO – This battle took place in just 18 minutes. But it changed the face of the southwest.
CHIEF COMPA – Compa was a friend of a trader named John Johnson. When Johnson decided to make some extra money by dealing in scalps, Compa’s was one of the first he took.
OKLAHOMA LAND RUSH I & II – Although the Oklahoma Land Rush was to have been an equal opportunity for everyone, there were those who took advantage of the situation.
THE GREAT NEWSPAPER BATTLE – In the Old West, being the first in getting the news out wasn’t always important. But, in this instance, a twenty-minute scoop was the difference between success and failure.
TEN MILES OF TRACK – Probably the greatest single achievement of the construction of the transcontinental railroad was the laying of ten miles of track in one day.
BILLY THE KID ESCAPES – When Billy the Kid realized he wasn’t going to get the amnesty he was promised, he escapes his captors.
HENRY NEWTON BROWN – Marshal Brown and his deputy took a few days off from work to rob a bank in nearby Medicine Lodge, Kansas.
