The January 2012 line-up:
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 aboutp - 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.
WILLIAM WALLACE – Wallace was a big man who lived a big live. But he was buried in a small town.
GAIL BORDEN – Although failure came to Gail time and time again, he persisted. As a result, everyone is familiar with the product he invented and his company.
CRAZY HORSE’S FINAL BATTLE – Things went downhill following Crazy Horse’s victory at the Little Big Horn. Although he was not defeated in battle, constant pursuit by General Miles ended in his surrender.
EMMET CRAWFORD – While chasing Geronimo, Captain Emmet Crawford was killed, not by an Indian, but his death resulted in the continuation of the Apache wars for nine more months.
WILLIAM COOK – Although he was the leader of his gang, William Cook wasn’t the enforcer. He had another member of his gang to do that.
DENVER’S FIRST TRIAL – As frontier town developed, law and order often arrived after the towns were established. But, once it arrived it could be harsh and unforgiving.
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.
RUNNING A SCAM – When con artists run a scam, it’s important to know the mark. For sure you don’t want it to be John Wesley Harden.
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."
RICHARD DUBLIN – Richard Dublin managed to elude the Texas Rangers to the point that Captain Reynolds exclaimed that his cook could do a better job of finding Dublin.
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.
THE POWER OF A SEMICOLON – We've all heard of the "power of the pen." It usually meant a book or newspaper article. In this case it was a simple semicolon.
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.
JOHN X. BEIDLER – John Beidler wasn't able to find his place in life until he was handed a hemp rope with a noose at one end.
MARSHALL DISCOVERS GOLD – Although John Marshall and John Sutter discovered gold at their mill, they saw none of the rewards of that discovery.
MICKEY FREE – A man with little redeeming qualities, him own best friend said of him, “He’s half Mexican, half Irish and whole SOB.”

REVEREND PEABODY – A very unusual man, Reverend Peabody was able to accomplish things in the boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona that were unbelievable.
ZANE GREY – Although he was educated as a dentist, Zane came out west and fulfilled his destiny as a great writer.
