Henry Plummer- Wild West Lawman/Outlaw/Legend
Feb 3 16
Henry Plummer left Addison, Maine, in 1852, and traveled west to make his fortune in the gold mines...
To some, he was thought of as a murderous, villainous, outlaw; yet to many, he was a trustworthy lawman, the marshal of Nevada City, California, and sheriff of Bannack, Montana.
In 1863, with the rise in murders and robberies in the gold fields of Montana, came a rise in Montana Vigilante justice, of which Henry Plummer and his supposed band of outlaws, aptly named "The Innocents", would experience first-hand on the very gallows that Plummer himself had built as Sheriff of Bannack Montana.
