US Marshal M D (Shorty) Thompson received a letter asking if he could come up to Leadville, Colorado. Outlaws had overrun the town and were stealing silver and gold ore from mines and any shipment. Leadville was their town and they meant to keep it, even if it meant a crooked sheriff legally hanging a US Marshal.
