Escape From Ogallala

This is an article giving the true account of the rescue of Billy Thompson by Bat Masterson in 1875.
Billy Thompson had been shot up in a saloon in Ogallala, Nebraska and following the shooting the law held him under guard at the town's only hotel, The Ogallala House, until he could be tried and hung – which was a forgone conclusion of all of the residents. His brother Ben Thompson, a noted gambler and pistol fighter, was convinced that the mob in Ogallala was waiting for him to come after Billy. He had reason to believe that if he showed up they intended to stage a necktie party for two. Hedging his bets Ben called in an old friend, Bat Masterson, to free his brother from the clutches of what was reputed to be the crooked law of Ogallala.

What followed was a dramatic (and often comical) rescue by Masterson and with the help of Buffalo Bill Cody the pair safely made it back to Kansas.

One of the great true stories of the Old West as told by G.R. Williamson, a historical writer living in Kerrville, Texas. He is the author of The Texas Pistoleers (2011) and Frontier Gambling (2012). Currently he is at work on a non-fiction book about Willis Newton – The Last Texas Outlaw.
