Ingalls in Payne County, Oklahoma — The American South (West South Central)
The Battle of Ingalls
— Pop. 150 —
When lawmen from Guthrie and Stillwater found out the outlaws were in Ingalls they formed a posse to capture them. A gunfight ensued and the outlaws escaped with the exception of Arkansas Tom who was captured. Three U.S. Deputy Marshalls and one local citizen were killed. The Doolin gang more or less fell apart after the Ingalls raid.
