The May 2012 line-up:
EPITAPH I & II – John Clum founded the Tombstone Epitaph that, prior to and following the O.K. Corral, supported the Earps. And, Clum’s fate was the same as the Earps after the shootout.
PIERCE & “BITTER CREEK” KILLED – An illustration of how outlaws need to keep an eye on their friends as well as their enemies.
CHARLIE LAZURE – Although Charlie wasn’t really a bad man, he was evidentially bad enough to get the nickname of “Rattlesnake Dick.”
ISAAC PARKER I, II & III – The story of how Isaac Parker became federal judge in the Indian Territory and eventually was known as “The Hanging Judge.”
NEWSPAPERS REPORT GOLD DISCOVERY – The two newspapers that first reported the California gold strike only did so for a few weeks. You’ll be amused to find out why.
THE GREAT REPUBLIC – A story that illustrates the Biblical principal of casting your bread upon the water.
GEORGE MALEDON – An associate of “Hanging Judge” Isaac Parker who made his nickname possible. Maledon was Parker’s hangman.
WIND WAGON – Samuel Peppard didn’t let his not having horses or oxen hamper him from traveling out west in his wagon. He used a resource in abundance in the Kansas Territory.
JAMES REAVIS – Reavis was without a doubt one of the greatest con men of the Old West. You’ll enjoy his biggest scam.
POKER FOR CATTLE – No penny-ante poker here. In place chips, cattle was placed on the table with winner take all. (Picture is of an Old West poker game.)
MORSE-SOTO SHOOTOUT – Was there a Superman in the 1800s? When you’re done with this story, you may think his name was Harry Morse.
STAGECOACH TREASURE – Another story of lost treasure found. But the finder died before he could tell anyone where it is.
WILLIAM SUBLETTE – Most mountain men wanted to stay away from people. Sublette was different. He was an organizer and a businessperson.
PIONEER MARRIAGE – Bethenia Owens marriage turned from bad to awful. But it was what she did afterward that is the story.
SECOND VIGILANTE COMMITTEE – We’re familiar with the vigilante committee that was formed at the time of the gold rush. But, there was another that was formed in 1856.
JIM BAKER – Although he wasn’t as well known as some other mountain men, Baker was a chip off the old block.
JESSE TYLER – Jesse was a lawman in Utah who, unfortunately, got caught up in political correctness, and it caught him his life.
BOB LEATHERWOOD – Leatherwood accomplished a lot around the area of Tucson, Arizona Territory. But, he had to admit that the one he was most famous for happened as the result of an accident.
CHARLES CORA – Cora was just waiting to be released from jail when he was joined by James Casey. From there things went downhill, all the way to the hangman’s noose.
ZWING HUNT – In the Old West, many an innocent person fell in with bad company. Hunt’s story was a typical one, until his end, that is.
