Item # 600897
June 17, 1882
THE CLEVELAND LEADER, Ohio, June 17, 1882 Page 2 has an article headed: "A Bravado Hanged" "Another of 'Billy The Kid's Gang Passes in his Checks". The report includes: "...from Albuquerque, N.M. says that Milton Yarberry was hanged here this afternoon for the murder of Charles Campbell...Thousands were present...He marched to the scaffold with a determined step & never flinched...This another of the gang of 'Billy the Kid' has passed in his checks." and more (see).
Relating to this, and other reports, are heads at the top of the page: "Crime" "The 'Crummie Jim' Murder Trial at Steubenville" "Particulars of the Hanging of a Negro Rapist" "Another of 'Billy the Kid's' Gang Hung" "A Man of His Word Swung Into Eternity".
Eight pages, minor tears at the spine margins, very nice condition.
