About this title

Synopsis:

This is a ground-breaking look at the sheriff elected in Bannack, Montana in 1863 and hanged by vigilantes in January, 1864. This is also a revisionist history of the Montana Vigilantes. After thirty-five years of research, the authors conclude that the conventional story of the Vigilante activities in Montana's gold camps is erroneous.

From the Publisher:

Historic Montana Publishing brings back into print this revisionist biography of the controversial Montana elected official hanged by vigilantes in 1864. The second edition begins with a new introduction by the noted historian Merle Wells, Ph.D., and ends with an afterword by Ruth Mather, in which she calls the stories of a secret gang of outlaws led by a murderous sheriff are myths, "fabulous tales . . . created in an attempt to exonerate the vigilantes, as well as increase newspaper sales."
