"RED LIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE"
Hole in the Wall Gang - June 2, 1899
by L.D. Edgar


In the early morning hours of June 2, 1899, on a lonely stretch of prairie approximately 12 miles east of Medicine Bow, Wyoming, near Wilcox Station, the first section of a Union Pacific train, flyer number one, was flagged to a stop by a man waving a red lantern.

Within seconds the engine crew found themselves under the guns of six members of the notorious "Hole in the Wall Gang" who, in the ensuing minutes, moved the train ahead of a small trestle, then dynamited the trestle and express car, escaped with approximately fifty thousand dollars in unsigned banknotes, and ignited a manhunt that spread across the entire West.

Exclusive issue of only 250 signed and numbered artist's prints at $250.00 each.  Image size - 18" X 24".
