Examine the weapons used in the horrific attacks that stood out even against the violent backdrop of life in the Wild West.
Head back to the open range and the whistle stops of the Old West with this unique series that examines the tales and traditions of the frontier with an engineer's eye.
The Wild West was full of danger and violence. It was a land where simple arguments could quickly elevate to bloodshed, where the weather could suddenly turn deadly, where justice was shaped by petty jealousies and fragile egos. But against this tumultuous backdrop, a handful of truly horrific events stand out. MASSACRE TECH examines some of the most infamous events of the era, including the Mormon massacre of a wagon train of settlers, the Yavapai Indian attack on a fully-loaded stagecoach and the decimation of a camp of Chinese prospectors by horse thieves. At each event, a different weapon played a pivotal role, and WILD WEST TECH highlights the hardware that made these deadly attacks possible.
