Murder & Mayhem in Gallatin County: A Book Reading with Kelly Hartman
At Extreme History, we like to say History Isn’t Pretty and that sums up Kelly’s new book, Murder and Mayhem in Gallatin County. Quiet fields broken by gunfire, the splash of a body dropping into the Madison River, cries for help cut off into silence and the grim last words spoken on the gallows all color the bloody history of Gallatin County. Cut-and-dried murder charges, unsolved cases and questionable accusations all paint the picture of law enforcement in and around early Bozeman. From the gruesome to the mysterious, sordid accounts of robbery, crimes of passion and fatal self-defense fill the annals of the historic county jail. Gallatin History Museum curator Kelly Suzanne Hartman chronicles each tale, allowing the reader to follow along the path of the investigations and the pursuit for justice. Join us at The Extreme History Project Headquarters (234 E. Mendenhall) on November 16 at 6pm for a book reading/signing event with Kelly Hartman. Masks are encouraged.
