Most of the civilians of the time were Civil War Veterans, a group of rowdy cow trail hands thought they would shoot up the sleepy little cow town of Ogallala, Nebraska, a rail head for cattle at the time to Eastern meat packing plants in Chicago and Omaha. The cow hands died on the dirt streets of Ogallala for their effort.

Trail bosses that freely let their cow herders go into Dodge City, Kansas held back the trailhands from entering Ogallala at the end of the cattle drive.

A man mounted on horseback armed with a hand pistol is a poor marksman, a civilian trained and hardened in civil war battle with a rifle from a sod house window is deadly advisory.

"Ogallala" is entirely too difficult to pronounce correctly to receive much limelight from Hollywood!

Not in general. Guns were a deterrent for violent behavior. They even called them the equalizer. Movies and TV exaggerate the use of guns in parlors to make the film exciting, not honest to reality.

No, on the contrary, they were well-known for being very quiet and well-behaved. They would attend church, if they arrived on a Sunday, and spend much of their time singing hymns and doing good works. Many an old lady had her life brightened by a visit and a bunch of flowers from Wild William Wazoo and his men.

What do you think they did?

well a little girl can be dangerous with a gun we see films of these hero's I recently saw a picture unearthed in the USA that was claimed to be the mighty Billy the Kid this fearsome gunfighter that graced our screens in many guises as John Wayne's right hand man that tamed the west he looked a scrawny little adolescent you would spank for being naughty so this myth is tarnished Jesse James was shot in the back by his own man for a reward and these are your hero's I grew up with the highway man Dick Turpin as a hero he never robbed any body never mind a stagecoach he was hanged for being a horse thief my hero take it with a pinch of salt the gun was the fear of the west not the people it is now
