The September 2012 line-up:
Felipe Espinosa I & II – After having six relatives killed in the Mexican War, Felipe went to Colorado with the objective of killing 600 Coloradoans.
Ira Aten – Ira was so affected with the experience of observing the death of Sam Bass that he determined to become a champion of law and order.
Grattan Massacre Revenge – Over 100 Sioux were killed as revenge for the death of an abandoned ox.
The McCartys – Whether brother, brother-in-law or nephew, the McCartys keep their bank robbing in the family.
James White – History books say that John Wesley Powell was the first person to travel the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. But, according to James White, they’re wrong.
California Becomes A State – Money talks, or in this case, it’s gold. California becomes a state without first having to meet the requirements.
Bert Alvrod – Bert walked both sides of the fence, as a lawman and an outlaw.
Ben Holliday – This king of transportation cut one too many corners, and found himself afoot.
Enoch Davis – Facing death bravely was greatly admired in the Old West. Unfortunately, Enoch Davis was not one of the brave ones.
Theodore Roosevelt – On September 14, 1901, Roosevelt becomes President, and attributes it to his experience as a cowboy.
Dog Bite Murders – Here’s an incident that started with a dog bite, and ended up involving the President of the United States.
Butterfield Overland Mail – Hollywood movies show stage passengers experiencing minor difficulties. Once again Hollywood misses the mark.
The Oxbow Route – “Pork” in legislation passed by Congress isn’t new. It even happened back in 1858.
Battle Of Beecher’s Island – The story of the first major conflict against Indians where the army had Spencer repeating rifles.
Oliver Perry – A most interesting story of a single man’s attempt to rob a train, and his trying to escape.
McCarty Turns Bad – But for an overreaction to a minor crime, Henry McCarty may have grown up to be an upstanding citizen.
Seth Bullock – Seth Bullock was a man who seemed to be everywhere and do everything.
Wild Bill Fired – Wild Bill Hickok’s predisposition to shoot first and ask questions later ended up in his losing his job as county sheriff.
Frank M. Canton – Many men of the Old West changed their name to gain a reputation or to evade one. Canton, not his real name, did it to evade one.
