Colorful Conflicts

While an ideal world would have no conflicts or disagreements, that peace is rarely a regular feature of life in frontier towns (or even today)! The smaller towns often had the craziest stories of conflict between individuals or between individuals and a business or organization. Here are a few of the stories we discovered in our research. We will add more stories as our research uncovers them.
