Our speaker for the evening will be George Lucas of Meade who will do a historical re-enactment featuring Tom Horn.
Tom Horn was an Old West lawman, scout, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw and assassin. He led a colorful and adventurous life, serving as a civilian scout for the U.S. Cavalry during the Apache wars. He served as a deputy sheriff in Arizona; and because of his tracking abilities, he also worked in Colorado and Wyoming as a detective for the Pinkerton’s Detective Agency.
On the day before his 43rd birthday, he was hanged in Cheyenne, Wyoming, for the murder of Willie Nickell, the 14-year-old son of a sheepherding rancher. It is still debated whether Horn committed the murder or not.
