Contrary to the opinion of many most of the western settlers were veterans of the Civil War and knew how to fight. So when the Burden gang tried to rob the Dodge City bank while Earp and his deputies were out of town, the citizens were able to stop the robbery and capture the outlaws. A couple were dead and the leader Dan Burden was wounded. Earp knows the gang based on stories from Sheriff Tillman. The Burdens own a small ranch in the area and the real ring leader is the sister Marie. Marie decides to go to Dodge City herself instead of their foreman Lance Morfit. Earp puts her under arrest but he has no proof she planned or led the robbery. Earp refuses to take a bribe from her so Marie is able to frame Earp for physically attacking her in the hotel forcing him to free her. She tells her brother she has a plan to get him off but her real goal is the death of Earp. Written by Anonymous
