An Illustrated Account of the Pleasant Valley Sheep War

Pleasant Valley, Arizona, in the 1880s saw a feud escalate between cattle ranchers and sheep herders over the limited grazing area. Sheep were shot, then men were shot, and the warring families kept at it long after the sheep were gone. The whole sordid story is told in comic book form at Modern Farmer. -via Digg
