Click To Enlarge
Train robberies, murders, prison breaks, and hangings were part of everyday life in the Twin Territories, and they are all featured in More Oklahoma Renegades. Stories like that of Ira Terrill are included here. Serving on the Oklahoma Territorial House of Representatives, Terrill advocated for tougher murder laws, enacting a law that allowed Kansas to work prisoners in the coal mines. After a particularly heated argument, Terrill was the first to be arrested under the law and serve under such conditions. After his release, he concentrated his efforts on exposing the injustice of forcing inmates to work as slaves, inspiring lawmakers to later cancel the arrangement. Others mentioned include doctor-turned-deputy Zeno Beemblossom and the banker-turned-hero Ben Kiehn. Written by Ken Butler - Paperback -
