True stories from the wild and woolly west. Also really lame jokes! Each episode I cover a real life person or event from the wild west era (gunfighters, outlaws, lawmen, Native Americans, frontiersmen, etc). I'm neither a historian nor a comedian, just a fan of history. I do, however, try to be as accurate as possible when covering these topics. All whilst dispensing dad jokes and totally butchering the English language.

On the 19th of December 1854 Captain Jonathan R. Davis and two of his companions were ambushed by a gang of murderous thieves. During the short battle that ensued, Davis was able to single-handedly kill all 11 attackers. Carving the last four up with his Bowie Knife.

One-man verses 11. Sounds a little too good to be true, huh? Sounds a little unbelievable to me, like something straight out of the movies.  Who WAS Jonathan Davis? And if this story is true, how was he able to fight so effectively while at the same time hauling around two giant balls the size of overweight toddlers? Join me today as we look into this little-known bad ass and see just how much of his tale is based on facts in this newest black powder edition of the Wild West Extravaganza!
