Please join Spur Award winning author, Carol Buchanan for a special program ” A VACUUM OF LAW: MONTANA’S VIGILANTES AND THE LAW IN 1863-1864.” During the Civil War, people rushed to Alder Gulch, one of the largest gold strikes in U. S. History. Along with millions in gold, the gold-seekers found no laws to restrain rampant greed. Ruffians ruled and murder was tolerated. By 1864 the Vigilantes had established a rule of law and hanged 22 members of a criminal conspiracy and set up a “People’s Court”. The program starts at 1:00 in the Heckathorn Community Room. Seating is limited so come early!
Come celebrate Banned Books Week at the Whitefish Community Library by checking out a banned or challenged book from our banned books display.
