Horn was allegedly a friend of Ed Tewksbury, whose feud with the Graham ranch resulted in the Pleasant Valley War.

Horn’s role in the feud has never been established. His autobiography, written while he was awaiting hanging, greatly embellished his role.

Marshall Trimble is Arizona’s official historian. His books include The Arizona Trilogy and Law of the Gun.
