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.
