2nd Saturday @ The History Museum: Order Without Law: Vigilante Tales of Old Fort Benton
The famed Montana Vigilante story centers on Henry Plummer & X. Beidler in Bannack & Virginia City in the early 1860s. Little has been known about the vigilante activity later in the 1860s in the booming and lawless riverport town of Fort Benton. Montana historian Ken Robison will take you through the streets of the Bloodiest Block in the West and the Hoo Doo Block to unveil the hidden tale of the vigilantes and lawman X. Beidler in Fort Benton. These tales are told from Ken’s new book Historic Tales of Fort Benton.
