The Dalton Gang plagued Oklahoma Territory in the early 1890s. After the disastrous Coffeyville Raid, the gang reformed as the Doolin-Dalton Gang, with Bill Doolin at the helm. The U.S. Marshals hired a legion of deputies, including Chris Madsen and Bill Tilghman, to bring down the gang, and Heck Thomas dealt the final blow when he cornered Bill Doolin in 1896.
