The January 2016 line-up:

Joel Fowler
Joel Fowler

PERRY OWENS – Although he looked like a fancy dressed dude, Sheriff Perry Owens took out four men in a matter of seconds without receiving a scratch.

SAMUEL COLT – Were it not for the war with Mexico, Colt’s 45 would probably not have been around to settle the West.

BOSE IKARD – Although the chances are excellent you’ve never heard of Bose Ikard, you may discover you knew more about him than you thought.

CULLEN BAKER – A bully, Cullen used his gun to make up for what he lacked in size. But, his bullying stopped when he came up against a crippled schoolteacher.

CRAZY HORSE’S FINAL BATTLE – Things went downhill following Crazy Horse’s victory at the Little Big Horn. Although he was not defeated in battle, constant pursuit by General Miles ended in his surrender.

EMPEROR NORTON – Did you know that in the 1870’s our country was governed by Emperor Norton, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico? Many people back then didn’t know it either.

BUFFALO BILL CODY – To this day Europe is enthralled with the American West and cowboys, because of Buffalo Bill Cody’s visits there in the late 1800’s.

COUNTY SEAT WAR – A battle between two towns over which was to be the county seat resulted in Bat Masterson sending a telegram that brought a temporary truce.

BASS REEVES – Born a slave, Bass Reeves became one of the Oklahoma Territory’s most successful lawmen.

WYATT EARP – Some say Wyatt was the Old West’s greatest lawman, others say his popularity was that he outlived his contemporaries, and was the last person to tell his story.

CHARLES BENT – Today, when constituents are dissatisfied with a politician they get him recalled. In 1847, some constituents were dissatisfied with their governor, but they handled it in a different way.

HOLE IN THE WALL – For outlaws the Hole In The Wall was like a combination vacation spot and employment agency.

JOHN MOSES BROWNING – We’re all familiar with Colt’s 45 and Winchester’s rifle. There was another firearm designer who not only came up with his own designs, he influenced these two.

PAWNEE SCOUTS – In 1865 the army fielded Company A, Pawnee Scouts, and for thirteen years, they did an unbelievable job of scouting for and protecting soldiers.

"LIVER EATING JOHNSON" – Jeremiah Johnson and the Crow Indians were at war for about 20 years. During that time, Jeremiah developed the reputation of eating the liver of those he killed.

JOEL FOWLER – Joel was a nice man, unless he was drunk. Finally, the citizens of Socorro, New Mexico got fed up with Joel’s actions and made sure he didn’t drink ever again.

LAWRIE TATUM – A Quaker, Lawrie felt that he could persuade the Kiowa and Comanche to take up the faith. But, it just didn’t take.

BAKER MASSACRE – In 1870 there was a strong movement to transfer the control of Indian affairs from the Department of Interior to the War Department. But the Baker Massacre stopped the movement in its tracks.

NELLIE CASHMAN – A woman well ahead of her time, Nellie was described as "pretty as a Victorian cameo and, when necessary, tougher than two-penny nails."

SAM FRAZIER – All Texas Rangers weren’t good men. Sam Frazier was a perfect example. But, his boss fired him…with a bullet.

WILLIAM BREAKENRIDGE – Men in the Old West tended to drift and have a number of occupations. But, I doubt there was anyone who had as many occupations as William Breakenridge.
