They were now hunting for more victims.

Fort Dakota Banner ©J. BoardmanPreviously: Boomer & Joey delivered their prisoners to “Willie” Taylor, “They’re all yours, Marshal.”

“Thank you, I think,” Taylor replied, “Who are you fellows?”

“We’re bounty-hunters,” Boomer replied, “We saw a poster claiming these fellows were wanted.”

 “I haven’t posted any yet.”

“The poster was in Minnesota,” Joey improvised—quickly, “In Moosehead County.”­

Meanwhile, Sgt. Steven Samuels met with Running Antelope.

“It is good to see you.”

“And to see you Running Antelope,” Samuels replied, “I must ask for your help my old friend.”

“How may I help?”

“Captain Lincoln requires scouts to find black and native Ojibwe soldiers, so we may engage and eliminate them from the Deadwood area,” Samuels replied, “And Sioux warriors to add to our small number of troopers.”

Ojibwe here in our land?” he asked, “This cannot stand—we will help you.”

“And with the Black soldiers?”

“Yes.”

Season 17—Adventure 12—Fort Dakota—Episode 6… Scene 1… Deadwood City Marshal’s Office…  At Joey’s request, the entire Posse met inside the City Marshal’s office, “City Marshal William Taylor, Deputy Tyrone Marshal Mathers,” Joey asked, “May I introduce the rest of our posse?”

“You may, Lieutenant,” Taylor replied, “If they’ll all accept deputy’s badges.”

“We will,” Wyatt replied, “I’m Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp IV, and my friends are my wife, Chris Earp, Linda Bryant Halvorson, Ralph Halvorson, Carl McIntyre, and Debra Wennen-Miller.”

Chief Deputy Mathers handed each Posse-member a badge.

After which—Marshal Taylor administered the oath of office, concluding with, “Now—we have our work cut-out for us.”

“How so?” Chris asked.

“We have word that a number of Sioux operating on the Wyoming side of the Black Hills—and their heading this way,” he replied, “You are tasked with finding them—before they get here.”

“Oh,” Chris replied, “I was afraid you’d assign us a difficult job.”

“Not to put a fly in the ointment,” Captain Boomer said, “But we’ve been activated by our superiors at Fort Leavenworth—and must follow our original orders which supersede your orders, I’m afraid.”

“Understood,” Taylor replied, “Do as you must with the knowledge you have local authority as well.”

Episode 6… Scene 2… Dakota Territory… Running Antelope & his expanded band, after a successful mission, returned to Dakota Territory—having tripled their number—and killing dozens of peaceful Sioux.

They were now hunting for more victims.
