George Morris has waited until Earp, Bassett, and Tllman are all out of Dodge City to make his move. Once he receives word from Curly they are gone, his gang takes over Dodge City and start looting it. They lock up Bassett and Earp's remaining deputies but Bat initially knocked out escapes to go after Earp. Earp decides against going to the Army for help so it is left to him and Bat to return alone with the hope locals will join them. They sneak into town via a sewer drain. Bat tries to masquerade as a civilian but is spotted forcing him and Earp to fight. The Morris gang chases them and finally traps them on a roof. Meanwhile Beeson is rounding up men at the Long Branch saloon to help in the fight. When Earp and Bat are threaten with fire, they leave the roof for the Long Branch saloon. They have Beeson's men take on the bulk of the gang while they go after Morris himself. They catch him trying to leave town and wound him in the legs ending the siege. Written by
Did You Know?
The Western frontier town of 1876 could take tornados, blizzards, and even Indian raids in stride. But there was one catastrophe which even the bravest townsman feared. This was the invasion by hoodlum gunfighters bent on punishing the town for trying to maintain strict law and order. Along with the turbulent annals in Dodge City, the day George Morris and his men captured Dodge is rated as the most terrifying experience in the memory of its citizens.
