"Today, the only evidence of the event that became known as ¿Black Friday¿ in Belle Plaine, Kansas back in 1884 is a pair of handcuffs and a chunk of wood¿ Before the night was over, one man would be shot to death and another shackled in those handcuffs and hanging from a rope attached to the wood¿ This is the story of Belle Plaine¿s ¿Black Friday,¿ its history, its players, its place in the American West."
