From California To Coffeyville

Chris Brewer contributes to video on the Daltons. The video, produced by the California Auctioneers and Appraisers, interviews California historian Chris Brewer and others about the history of the Dalton Brothers and the Wild Bunch gang and describes in detail the capture of the 1876 Winchester rifle used by Bill Dalton in California’s first train robbery 1891 and seized by Sheriff E.W. Kay, Tulare County, California. The incident was described in Frank Latta’s book, “Dalton Gang Days,” and the rifle ended up in Latta’s archives until it was sold after his death. The rifle was auctioned off May 5, 2013.
