Did You Know?


General Crook did really exist and he arrived in Deadwood with his troops. General George Crook led a military expedition in pursuit of a band of Sioux Indians who were fleeing after the Battle of Little Bighorn, in fear of retaliation. Crook and his troops, didn't have enough rations to last them for the length of time they were tracking the Indians. As a result, as one of their horses or mules went lame, they resorted to eat the meat. This was referred to as the Horsemeat March of 1876. Crook sent ahead Captain Anson Hills, with a small group of troops to request a train with supplies to meet them in Deadwood. Hills and his troops came across a Lakota war party but didn't have the numbers needed to defeat the Indians. Crook arrived in Deadwood, they were able to get their supplies but were still out numbered and worn out to defeat the Lakota. See more »


When Merrick removes the lens cap while taking a photo of the cavalry officers; he loses his grip of the lens cap and it remains in front of the lens. Since photographs taken in this way required a long exposure a mistake like this would have resulted in ruined picture. The picture that Merrick later laments about and hopes to re-shoot shows no evidence of the lens cap that was in the way earlier. See more »


E.B. Farnum: [as Russell leaves the hotel] Antemeridian constitutional, Mr. Russell? Or will we roll the bones again?
Otis Russell: It must cost you sleep. The guests you drive off, the chances of thievin' and bilkin' you lose, needing to rub against your betters.
[he smiles and heads for the door, but before he can walk out, Seth confronts him in a barely concealed rage]
Seth Bullock: You and I are gonna talk.
Otis Russell: You don't account for my preferences, Mr. Bullock?
Seth Bullock: I will beat you here in the street.
Otis Russell: First-rate thinking.
