From rough & tumble Deadwood, Dakota Territory...
Item # 668707
June 20, 1882
BLACK HILLS DAILY PIONEER, Deadwood City, Black Hills, Nov. 24, 1878
* Very rare & desired publication
* Famous wild West town
* "Wild Bill" Hickok fame
This city would arguably be--along with Tombstone & Dodge City--one of the more famous of all the towns from the rough & tumble days of the Old West, and only rarely do such issues come to light.
This issue is from the "heyday" of the Wild West. Some of the most celebrated names of the Old West passed through Deadwood, not the least of whom was "Wild Bill" Hickok, who was famously murdered in this town just two years previous. The ftpg. has column heads including: "Brutal Acts Practiced by a Lawless Officer" "More Serious Indian Troubles in Oregon" "The Whites Killing Redskins Outside of Reservation". And page two begins with "A Proclamation - by the Governor of the Dakota Territory".
Four pages with various news tidbits throughout and a wealth of ads, most with a decidedly "western" theme. Never bound nor trimmed, in very nice condition
