The new sheriff of Abilene, "Bear River" Smith, tries to uphold the law in the wild town without carrying a sidearm -- with mixed results.
Did You Know?
The real Thomas "Bear River" Smith wasn't killed in a barroom; but while attempting to serve a warrant on local farmer Andrew McConnell, who was wanted in connection with a murder. When confronting McConnell, Smith was shot in the chest and returned fire (the real Smith used firearms when the need arose) managing to wound McConnell. McConnell's accomplice, Moses Miles, beat the wounded Smith with the butt of his rifle and proceeded to decapitate him with an ax. See more
