Fort Smith National Historic Site film about Judge Parker's Court
15 November 2005 | by warrior08See all my reviews

This is a film made by the National Park Service about the influence of Judge Issac C. Parker (the hanging judge) and the United States Marshalls that operated out of his court. Although his court was the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, most of his case load of over 13,000 cases from 1875 to 1896 actually dealt with crimes that occurred in Indian Territory, i.e. Oklahoma. More Marshalls died in the line of duty out of this court than any other in US History. This film, approximately 20 minutes long, tells a few stories about some of them such as Addison Beck. A number of the voices are by current law officers (Major Jeff Barrows and Chief Randy Reed, of the Fort Smith Police Department). Park Rangers Tom Wing, Eric Lenord and Julie Galonska helped write this film.
