DEADWOOD DAILY PIONEER, Black Hills, (South Dakota) July 23, 1889
* Rare 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. It attracted larger-than-life Old West figures including Wyatt Earp, Calamity Jane, and Wild Bill Hickok (who was killed there). "Union List of Newspapers" notes only two institutions have but scattered 19th century issues of this title.
Among the articles are: "Mine & Mill" "Water for Dakota" "Midnight Executions" and more including a variety of local tidbits. Also a great wealth of illustrated advertisements.
Four pages, very nice condition.
