Montana -- Medicine Lodge. Summary There are few white settlements, including Fort Custer on the Bighorn River, a trading post or two, a couple of missionaries, and the town of Medicine Lodge, some twenty miles south of the new Crow Agency. There are two big cow outfits in the area and a couple of small ranches, all trespassing on tribal land.
Marshal of Medicine Lodge : A Merlin Fanshaw Western
There are a dozen or so farmers along Medicine Lodge Creek, and they're trespassing too. The Crow Indians are on short rations, and hungry. Every now and then, they steal a steer or two from the cowmen. The cowmen strike back and steal the Crows' horses. Once in a while, somebody gets shot. Even so, it is a marvel the situation isn't a whole lost worse, considering that red men and white men don't understand each other at all. They have mostly gotten along well, until lately.

Rain poured down on the morning of April 30, , as the four men rode into town and hitched their horses behind the coal shed of the Medicine Valley Bank. The bank had just opened when three of the men burst in and demanded cash. The bank president reached for his revolver and was shot by Brown.
The clerk was shot twice by another gang member but was able to stagger to the vault and trigger the combination lock. Both men died soon after. Meanwhile, an alarm was raised on the street outside the bank. Foiled in their robbery attempt, the gang quickly mounted their horses and fled town with an angry posse in pursuit.
They surrendered about two hours later after being trapped in a box canyon outside town. The photo at left was taken after the gang's capture. Of the four men grouped at the center of the photo, Marshal Henry Brown is second from left, and Assistant Marshal Ben Wheeler is at far right in the line-up. A mob chanted "Hang them!
The Caldwell Journal later reported that a hush then descended on the town, and "the impression prevailed that before many hours the bodies of four murderers would swing in the soft night air.
