The Dalton Gang. National Day of the Cowboy is coming up this Saturday, July 27, and to celebrate we're asked the acclaimed author of Desperadoes, Ron Hansen, about what it means to be a cowboy. http://www.openroadmedia.com/blog/2013-07-25/The-Evolution-of-the-Cowboy-by-Ron-Hansen.aspx
The Dalton gang (Bill Power; Bob Dalton; Grat Dalton, Dick Broadwell), after their unsuccessful attempt to rob two banks at once in Coffeyville, Kansas, in 1892. Emmet Dalton survived with 23 gunshot wounds. A fourth Dalton brother, Bill, rode with the Wild Bunch (the Doolin-Dalton gang or Oklahombres, not Butch Cassidy's outlaws).
William Marion Dalton (1866–June 8, 1894), called Bill Dalton, was an American outlaw in the American Old West. He was the co-leader of the Wild Bunch gang and he was the brother of the founders of the Dalton Gang, Gratton, Bob and Emmett.
Dalton Gang Hideout, in Meade, Kansas was the home of Eva Dalton Whipple, sister to the infamous Dalton Gang. Erosion uncovered the tunnel from the house to the barn, known as the gangs means of come and go.
