Mayhem and Murder: Crime in Territorial Tucson

Homer Thiel, Presidio Museum Board Member and Archaeologist, will explain how western movies and television shows envisioned the Old West as a place where breaking the law was common and guns were often used to settle arguments. How true was this in Territorial-era Tucson? This talk will look at the types of criminal activities that took place and tell a few tales about interesting crimes.
This lecture will be held live on the Territorial Patio at the Presidio Museum. You may attend in person and pay your $5 fee at the Presidio Museum. Or, you may watch this lecture on ZOOM!
