This left us enough time to play the Dalton's raid on Coffeyville, this time I took the bank robbers and Simon the citizenry. Once the Dalton's were recognised the locals ran to arm themselves and move on the banks. I brought Grat Dalton, Bill Power and Dick Broadwell out of the Condon Bank and across the street with the intention of making a run for the horses tied up in a nearby alley, Bob and Emmett meanwhile decided to stay put in the 1st National and shoot it out with citizens who had made it to the front of the bank and were shooting through the windows. I now made a fatal mistake and thought Grat and his sidekicks could finish off some of the locals who were heading in their direction.

For those who know nothing about the Coffeyville robbery the Dalton gang of three brothers and two friends tried to rob two banks on the same day, unfortunately even with wigs and false beards they were recognised as they had been Coffeyville residents in the past. The citizens rallied and gunned down four of the gang, only Emmett survived with 23 wounds to his body, he became an author and actor after fourteen years in prison.
