DeArment's Bat book

If DeArment's research is correct neither Bat nor Wyatt were in Dodge when Clay "treed" the town. Bat was in Kansas City and Wyatt was 4 miles off fighting fires with other deputies.

      With the exception of minor changes to the heading, they're more or less the same story lines.

        Thee's been a lot of research done since DeArment wrote Bat's bio, and a lot of it was done by people who learned how to resarch Western characters by emulating DeArment's methods. I don't have DeArment's... more

          DeArment has the date as Sep. 17 or 18, 1878. Did the "Rogers" factor the Cheyenne renegade activities into their timeline? DeArment sets his dates for the event and Siringo's arrival on this and... more

            Erik, Roger Myers has not passed on. I said he "is now absent" as in absent from this board. It is my understanding that he recently had an article published in the WWHA Jornal. I wish he would begin to... more

                I realize the duo Roger could not pick Sept. 19, 1878, for the imbroglio with Clay Allison, since Bat did not arrive home from attending the Kansas City Fair until Sept. 23. The K. C. Fair commenced on... more

                  To the best of my memory, they arrivd at the date of September 24th because, partially, of references to he Dull Knife raid in the newspapers and an initial misunderstanding of when Cape Willinghm, who... more

                    I really don't remember, but it is possible that the two Rogers researched the news that Cape Willigham told Siringo about the previous day's events in Meade City and the near the Crooked Creek store.... more
