Laredo at the Royal Gunpowder Mills, May 2015
This year presenting a spectacular
The Johnson County War
Fighting over land was a common occurrence in the development of the American Old West, when large portions of the land were being settled by New Americans for the first time through the homesteading act. It was a period which historians call the Western Civil War. Not a flattering reflection on the American myth of the west, the Johnson County War is a much told frontier conflict.
