Indiana State Seal

What is it about my Indiana home that seemed to breed Old West types—often bad guys?

Try these on for size: John Ringo. Montana lawman/outlaw Buck Stinson (and his compatriot Red Yeager), hanged by vigilantes. Frank Canton. Doolin Gang associates the Dunns. Oklahoma bad guy Zip Wyatt (mortally wounded by a posse). Sam Bass (and his mentor, Henry Underwood), mortally wounded by lawmen. For a time, Billy the Kid (killed by Pat Garrett). Deputy US Marshal Ed Short (killed by an outlaw). Coffeyville Marshal Charlie Connelly (killed by the Daltons). And more.
