Lincoln War

When in August 1877 they again collided in one of the saloons, Cahill behaved as usual. Quite a bit of a grin, he called Billy bad words, to which he heard a couple of unpleasant expressions in response. Cahill could not stand it. He jumped out of the chair, rushed to Billy, knocked him down, pressed him to the floor and began to beat him in the face. He was beside himself with anger.

After the three people in the house let themselves be tied, two of them had their skulls cut open, and the third was cut off. Leaving, the self-satisfied bandits burned down the ranch. In February, they again attempted to commit a robbery, but were repelled by well-armed wakeiro. Continue reading

Arrows of the Wild West

Despite the proverb that existed in the Wild West: “God created people, and Mr. Colt called them equal”, the most popular among the bandits and among the representatives of the law was not a revolver or a Winchester, as many believe, but an ordinary shotgun! Arizona sheriff John Slauter once fell upon a meticulous journalist tormenting him with a question why he was taking a shotgun with him in pursuit of bandits, growling in response:

“To kill people, damn dumbass!”
