John Wesley Hardin did the shooting...
Item # 691641
November 19, 1875
THE NEW YORK TIMES, Nov. 19, 1875
* John Wesley Hardin shootout
The front page has a rather brief yet notable report headed: "Two Men Murdered In Texas" which notes in part: "...party of five men entered Ryan's saloon & killed Reuben Brown, city marshal... a member of the Sutton party. His body was riddled with balls...Brown was the man who arrested Taylor for the murder of Sutton..." with more. See the hyperlink on the Sutton-Taylor Feud to see that it was noted outlaw John Wesley Harden who killed Reuben Brown.
Complete with 8 pages, light toning at the margins, small piece torn away at bottom right corner, fragile and must be handled with care.
