The April 2012 line-up:
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.
PONY EXPRESS – The Pony Express, one of the Old West’s most romantic organizations, lasted only about a year and a half.
BLAZER’S MILL SHOOTOUT – During the Lincoln County War, a gang of 13 Regulators, including Billy the Kid were out shot by just one man.
GEORGE SCARBOROUGH – George is known for being the man who killed the man who killed the famous man…John Wesley Harden.
CHARLES M. RUSSELL I & II – Charles Russell was a cowboy who just happened to be an artist. But, when he met Nancy Cooper, things changed.
SEMINOLE-NEGROES – A most unusual military unit, they were tenacious in hunting down the marauding Comanche.
NATE CHAMPION – Nate, like many settlers, was one tough person in a conflict with cattlemen.
SHOPPING SERVICE – The convenience of having someone shop for you isn’t new. It took place back in 1869.
MASTERSON-PEACOCK SHOOTOUT – James Masterson got into trouble, and his brother, Bat, came to his rescue.
PAT GARRETT’S BOOK – Pat Garrett wrote a book about his conflict with Billy the Kid. He hoped it would make him famous. Unfortunately, the book made Billy the Kid famous.
POLITICIAN CUSTER – Militarily Custer saw the saw the enemy and attacked. Political Custer tried the same thing, but it didn’t work.
DENVER’S FIRE – As with most tragedies, Denver’s fire brought out the best and the worst from men.
DEACON JIM MILLER – Jim Miller man was known as Deacon Miller and Killer Miller. And both names were correct.
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.
JESSE JAMES MARRIED I & II – Jesse James’ marriage to his first cousin was quite an affair. Even the Pinkertons showed up.
PETER LASSEN – There are those people who aspire to be the president of a country. Peter Lassen wanted to start his own country. (The picture is of Peter Lassen.)
ZEBULON PIKE – Although Zebulon Pike was a successful explorer, it seems his success was in spite of his miscalculations.
MEDICINE LODGE HOLDUP – Like many a holdup, the Medicine Lodge Bank holdup seems to have gone wrong from the very beginning.
