"It's a tough town. Walk in the center of the street and keep your mouth shut," Gunslingers walked this street; few earned a reputation but more earned eternity here than in other fabled western towns.
Indians were fair game. Their corpses dumped into the river started war and a massacre. Mose Solomon, saloon owner, eliminated two customers on the corner; Lou Marshall added Hinchley and several others gunned down on this street "won't be missed."
Poker was played with six-guns atop the table. Females from the brothels were as tough as the men. Madame Moustache brandished Colts to halt the landing of a steamboat carrying smallpox. Saloons and "houses" stayed open all night. The block was lined with barrooms, cathouses and gambling dens-so lawless it had to circled by a cavalry troop so a U.S. Marshal could serve warrants of five on its residents.
