Gangsters & Grifters: Gritty Crime Photos from the Archives of the Chicago Tribune
Guards surround the courthouse and jail in Crown Point, Ind., as they wait for John Dillinger's arrival. A few months earlier Dillinger had escaped from jail in Lima, Ohio with the help of members of his gang. Authorities feared his gang would attempt to rescue their leader a second time.
Dallas Stoudenmire - perhaps the most deadly of all gunfighters; former Texas Ranger and U.S. Marshall; wore two guns and was accurate with either or both hands. A tall (6' 4"), dark-haired, handsome ladies man, he was also a quick-tempered killer when drunk. A dangerous man with a well-earned reputation as a gunfighter and tamer of lawless towns. He died as he lived.
