A common misconception of the Old West is that gunslingers, murderers, and other criminals were men. While most crimes were committed by males, occasionally a woman would do something that resulted in her ending up in court. Hear some of their stories during this lecture presented by Presidio Museum Board Member, archaeologist and historian Homer Thiel. (Photo above is of Eva Dugan, the last woman executed by hanging in the state of Arizona.)
