Fort Dakota Banner ©J. BoardmanPreviously: “Gee,” Mac grinned, “I wonder what my old friend General Whitcomb thinks about that?”

“You know General McKinley, Sergeant Major?”

“He was Colonel McKinley when we served together during the war.”

“Oh—you were his cook?”

“No,” Mac replied, “His battalion Sergeant-Major.”


“You have a telegraph here—contact him now!”

Mac and his fellow militia-members all grinned—widely as McKinley’s aid had his aid send the message and repeated McKinley’s reply, “Damn-right McIntyre was my Battalion Sergeant-Major, and a damn-fine one at that. Do you have a problem with that?” 

“You’d best send a reply now—if you wish to continue your career.”

Episode 1…Scene 2… Meanwhile—Back in Deadwood… Chris and the Wyatt visited the City Marshal’s office.

The Town Marshal, William McCoy, and his Chief Deputy, Jon Hopkins were in the office, “How may I help you?” Marshal McCoy asked.

“By telling us you’ve made some arrests in the shooting at Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon,” Wyatt Earp asked.

McCoy smiled, “No arrests were made—because we didn’t think it was necessary, as only scum had the misfortune to be shot during the ruckus.”

Season 17—Adventure 12—Fort Dakota—Episode 2… Scene 1… Deadwood City Marshal’s Office… “Well—aren’t you just special?” Chris quipped.

GET OUT—NOW!” William McCoy demanded, “Before we start shooting!”

“Perhaps you’ve heard of me,” Wyatt grinned, “My name is Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp—perhaps you’ve heard of me?”

McCoy’s eyes widened—he knew if he said the wrong thing—he’d be joining his ancestors, “P-p-please enjoy your stay here in Deadwood.”

With that said—Chris & Wyatt strolled-out of the Marshal’s office—grinning.

“What now, Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp?”

“Well,” Wyatt replied, “Mrs. Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp—do you think should be next?”

“How about returning to the saloon and causing trouble for the owners—THAT would be fun.”

“Let’s do that!”

Episode 2…Scene 2… Black Hills Near Deadwood… Captain Boomer and Company patrolled for many, many miles along the RR line—and found no bad guys.

“Well—this is fun!”

“You think, Joey,” Mac replied, “What you call fun—would be getting ambushed?”

“No,” Joey replied, “But I brought my 21st Century camera—lots of great scenery hereabouts.”

Episode 2…Scene 3… Still in the Black Hills Near Deadwood… Captain Boomer and Company patrolled through a Ghost Town—and imagined it in its hey-day.

“It appears to me—this town didn’t last very-long.”

“Whatever made you think that, Joey?” AJ asked, “The fact that there-is only three buildings?”

“Gee, AJ, ya think?”

Our story will be Continued…

    What more would they need other than the Saloon and 2 buildings for the Madam and Call Girls? They could literally yell out the Saloon door “Hey Call Girls I am Calling you! “
