Author: by C.J. Petit
May 30, 2021
Lemhi County Sheriff Mitch Ward wasn’t pleased after capturing notorious gang leader Ace Carr. There were two reasons for his displeasure. He’d only been able to find the gang’s boss, so he knew that the other four members of his gang were probably still in his county.
The other reason was that Ace wasn’t wanted in his county, so he’d have to transport him to Lewiston on the border between Oregon and Idaho Territory. The county seat of neighboring Nez Perces County was two hundred miles away, so he would have to use the scheduled stagecoach to bring him to trial.
He planned to ride shotgun while one of his deputies stayed in the cabin cuffed to the shackled prisoner. He was convinced that Ace’s boys would try to keep their boss from climbing the gallows steps in Lewiston. He believed that he had prepared for whichever tactic they might try to spring him loose.
But when they made their move, he received the shock of his life.
