Did You Know?
Tom Horn arrived in Arizona Territory in 1881. There is some debate whether he was a hired gun or killer for hire in The Pleasant Valley War (a range war fought in Pleasant Valley, Arizona in the years 1882-1892). The Pleasant Valley War had the highest number of fatalities of such range conflicts in United States history, with an estimated total of 38 to 64 deaths, and the near destruction of the males of the two quarreling families. The war was fought between two feuding families, the ranchers Tewksburys and Grahams. Army quartermaster records show that Tom Horn was first employed in September 1881 as a teamster at Whipple Barracks, near Prescott Arizona. Some say that Tom Horn had killed at least three men, but nothing is confirmed. Both sides of the feud suffered abounding murders to which no suspect was ever identified. In his autobiography, Tom Horn writes: "Early in April of 1887, some of the boys came down from the Pleasant Valley, where there was a big rustler war going on and the rustlers were getting the best of the game."
