The Long Knives

by Frank C. McCarthy

An army patrol scours the dry and dusty but spectacular canyon country in search of Indians, who refer to the cavalrymen as “Long Knives” for the sabers they carry. Though the men on these exhausting patrols rarely found Indians, they did learn the lay of the land and their geographic discoveries helped to create some of the first maps of the Southwest.

The Long Knives is not artist Frank McCarthy’s first depiction of the tireless patrolmen of the Southwest. In Scouting the Long Knives, he painted an Apache scout hiding behind a sandstone boulder as he watched a column of the horsemen pass. Frank McCarthy’s gift was his talent for creating compelling and dramatic paintings, but his talent was his determination to share both sides of a story.

The Gunfighters
by Don Crowley

To commemorate 200 years of law enforcement by the United States Marshals Service in 1989, acclaimed artist Donald Crowley created six portraits of great gunmen of the Old West. We begin the limited edition publication with two of these legends.

The title of Doc Holliday’s portrait is taken from his dying words at the age of thirty-four. It is thought that Holliday was remarking on a rogue such as himself, dying in bed, with his boots off. Wyatt Earp moved to Tombstone, Arizona to retire from a lifetime of law enforcement, but soon found himself entangled in a battle with a gang of local outlaw families, the Clantons and McLaurys. Wyatt, along with his brothers Morgan and Virgil, and their friend the dentist, gambler and gunman John Henry “Doc” Holliday, clashed with the gang in the gunfight that became known as the Shoot-Out at the O.K. Corral.
