Horning in on trial


The Grand Encampment Museum (GEM) hosted another of its speaker series events at the Grand Encampment Opera House Thursday.

Valley residents and visitors attending the talk learned about the trial of Tom Horn with speaker John Davis, an attorney and historical author from Worland. Davis’ most recent book, published in March by the University of Oklahoma press, is about the famous trial.

Horn was a scout who also worked as a soldier, cowboy, Pinkerton detective and gunslinger for hire. In 1902, Horn was convicted in the murder of 14-year-old Willie Nickell near Iron Mountain, Wyoming.
