"Brothers of the Gun", a western bronze by L.D. Edgar, Western Heritage Studio, Cody Wyoming.

By L.D. Edgar



The Time: 9:45 on the morning of October 5, 1892.
The Place: Coffeeville, Kansas, a small town in the southeast part of the state; a quiet, pleasant, peaceful town - until that fateful morning.
The Objective: To hold up two banks simultaneously.
The End: Failure, death - and a place in American history.

When all fell silent that morning, four of the Dalton Gang lay dead; Bon and Grat Dalton, Bill Powers and Dick Broadwell, with the other member severely wounded; 20 year old Emmett Dalton.  Four citizens gave their lives - Charles Brown, George Cubine, Charles Connelly and Lucius Baldwin.  Three others were wounded.

Brave men rode on both sides of the law that day.  In the battle Emmett Dalton rode back through a hail of gunfire to save his wounded brother.  He was cut down.  Had he foregone this gesture, he might have escaped.  This last act of valor is depicted in "Brothers of the Gun".
