During the Lincoln County, NM cattle-baron wars, the likes of Pat Garrett, William Brady, Dick Brewer, Wm. H. McCarty, Butch Cassidy, Sundance and many more played a major role in shaping the history of the West.
They worked for various factions of a corrupt territory controlled by a few of the wealthiest men in America. The third riches man at that time was Lucien B. Maxwell who employed the best Regulators money would buy.
This was where six-gun justice had little to do with the truth, and some lawmen worked on opposing sides of a dispute. Take for example Sheriff William Brady and Deputy Dick Brewer, who died in the line of duty. They were both killed on opposites sides of a shootout, while serving arrest warrants.
