He includes some of the history of Calamity Jane, who is buried beside Wild Bill in Deadwood. You might be interested because so much of what has been written is just story and not f...

New Winchester museum near Dubois WY

Does anyone know Dan Starks who is building a Winchester Museum near Dubois WY right now.
Plans to have it open by next year. I have a friend who lives there and has watched it being
built. Kind of odd given the Cody Museum is so close to that area. Anyone heard about it ?

however the 44-40 might be in the running as well. Well done.
