Friday Photo: Was Henry Plummer Innocent?

Recently, I got to chat with radio host Aaron Flint about Henry Plummer and the vigilantes, Custer's dogs, Langford Peel's tombstone, and lots of other wonderful tidbits from Montana history. Here's a link to Voices of Montana where you can hear the whole conversation.

We'll probably never have absolute proof of Henry Plummer's guilt or innocence. But while you listen to the show and ponder the evidence, here's a photo of his grave. Plummer was buried in Hangman's Gulch within sight of Bannack.
