Henry Newton Brown, the city marshal of Caldwell, Kansas, had been caught after attempting to rob the Medicine Lodge Bank of Kansas in April of 1884. He had been in jail before, but never as a badge-wearing marshal. Brown had hunted buffalo on the great plains, ridden with Billy the Kid during the Lincoln County War, and held up the law in Old Tascosa. William Bonney, Pat Garrett, John Chisum, John Tunstall, Alex McSween, Buckshot Roberts, and Charles Siringo: he had known them all and had fought with and against them. He had been jailed in Medicine Lodge with his accomplice, but he had a plan, one that would give him one more chance and a fresh start. The townspeople were beginning to talk about the small jail in the darkness. They sounded more and more life a mob bent on lynching. Henry and his three companions had managed to pry themselves loose from their handcuffs and leg irons. The mob was coming to take them from the jail. Brown had coiled himself behind the jailhouse door and was ready when the first men threw open the door. Henry charged into the crowd, breaking for freedom and the safety of darkness. It had worked. He had caught the disorganized crowd by surprise. His stride lengthened as he broke past the crowd and beyond Bill Kelley who was holding a double barrel shotgun. Henry Brown wanted one more chance, just one more

Texas gunslingers by Bill O'Neal( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the concept of Texas as the Gunfighter Capital of the West. Indeed, after the cowboy, Texas' most colorful and romanticized frontier figure is the gunfighter. Nothing is more dramatic than life and death conflict, and the image of men in big hats and boots brandishing six-shooters and Winchesters has been portrayed in countless Western novels, movies, and television shows. Texas made an enormous contribution to gunfighter lore. Texas Rangers were responsible for the evolution of Sam Colts revolving pistol, key weapon of gunfighters. More shoot-outs occurred in Texas than in any other state or territory. More gunfighters were from Texas, including kill-crazy Wes Hardin and Killin Jim Miller, the Wests premier assassin. There were more blood feuds in Texas than in any other state. Frequently, gunplay erupted in towns such as Tascosa, El Paso, Fort Worth, and Lampasas, where four lawmen were killed in an 1873 saloon battle
