The December 2014 line-up:

Sioux Mass Hanging
Sioux Mass Hanging

ELFEGO BACA – Although you have probably never heard of him, Elfego had more grit than the Old West’s most famous heroes.

WYATT EARP BOXING REFEREE – Because of his celebrity status, while in San Francisco, Wyatt refereed a title-boxing match. I’m sure he enjoyed the O.K. Corral shootout better.

SHERIFF LUND – As Sheriff Lund discovers, just because the law is on his side, it doesn’t mean it’s easy to chase down the outlaws.

BEN THOMPSON – Even though Austin, Texas knew they were hiring a less than stellar man as town marshal, Ben was just more than they could handle.

CAMILLUS SIDNEY FLY - Tombstone, Arizona’s erstwhile photographer missed out on getting some historic pictures. And, no one knows just why.

CHARLES GOODNIGHT - Goodnight was an early cattleman who was an innovator. One of his lesser-known innovations resulted in cowboys “eatin’ good” on the trail.

BENJAMIN EDWARDS – Ten years before the revolution that created an independent Texas, Edwards tried his own revolution. When it failed, he wasn’t around to pick up the pieces.

TOM O'FOLLIARD – Although Tom wasn’t well known, he’s presently buried next to Billy the Kid, because he was Billy’s best friend.

FETTERMAN'S MASSACRE – Captain Fetterman said he could safely ride through Indian country with only 80 men. He got his chance. The ride was over in minutes.

WILLARD CHRISTIANSON – With no police academies, Old West lawmen normally received “hands on” training…That means they were an outlaw before becoming a lawman. At least, that’s the story of this man.

MONTANA VIGILANTES I & II – Henry Plummer and his “Innocents” controlled the goldfields of Montana, until the local citizens formed an Old West version of a neighborhood watch.

HELENA, TEXAS – The story of how a single bullet had the ability to kill a whole town.

SIOUX MASS HANGING – Had President Lincoln not commuted a number of sentences, there would have been a mass hanging of 307 men, instead of 39.

RUFUS SOMERBY – You’ve heard of men who have gotten in trouble by deserting the military. Rufus got into trouble by joining more than one branch at the same time.

TIBURCIO VASQUEZ GANG I & II – Tiburcio did crazy things like hold up a whole town. And, even though he was hanged, he was a hero to many a person.

CHARLEY PARKHURST – One of the Old West’s best-known stage drivers was discovered to be living a life of deception.

DEATH VALLEY CHRISTMAS – Caught in the middle of Death Valley, the Brier family found their Christmas celebration was one they probably never forgot.

VIRGIL EARP SHOT – The last half of 1881 was a tough time for the Earps. It was climaxed by the shooting of Virgil.

WOUNDED KNEE – Without a doubt one of the worst atrocities in the Plains Indian Wars, it was one that neither side really wanted.

MARION HEDGEPETH – Marion learned his trade of outlawry in the West, but practiced it in the East.

CYNTHIA'S NEW YEAR'S DANCE – This evening of celebration ended up in death. And, interestingly, it wasn’t caused by alcohol.
