Living on the Edge
Sculptor: D. Michael Thomas
Small ranchers, like this cowboy, rode south from Buffalo on the morning of April 11, 1892, to confront “the invaders” at the Ta Ranch. Sheriff Red Angus, citizens of Buffalo, and small ranchers laid siege to the gunmen. Three days later, troops from Fort McKinney, near Buffalo, arrived on the scene. The invaders surrendered and were escorted to the fort, then sent to Cheyenne, They were never brought to trial.
