This event is free andbropen to all. Was the Utah Territory a violent and lawless place? Or was it abrpeaceful and lawful one? Or a bit of both? Separating fact and fiction aboutbrcolorful and notorious outlaws such as Matt Warner, Butch Cassidy, the McCartybrGang, Isom Dart, Elza Lay, Ann and Josie Bassett, and the Wild Bunch is abrfascinating challenge.
