By Donald R. Lavash

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Was Sheriff William Brady a willing pawn in the hands of a crooked political fation or was he an honest man dedicated to law and order? After his extensive research, Donal R. Lavash thinks Brady deserves a more realistic evaluation of his part in the Lincoln County Was in New Mexico.

In 1873, crime and violence were rampant in Lincoln County, New Mexico. Land fraud, cattle and horse stealing were common. Outlaws, including Billy the Kid, swarmed in to join hands with dishonest citizens. Although Brady tried to stem the frowing tide of anarachy, his efforts ended when he was ambused by Billy the Kid and his gang.
