IVES, George Homer [1836-1863] -- American bandit and villain

Relationship to me: 6C4
IVES family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

Was a member of the infamous Plummer Gang in the time following the 1863 discovery of gold in the Black Hills. Bold and brutal, he came to a bad end with a murder, trial and hanging. The controversy surrounding these events led to a two month spree of 22 hangings by a vigilante mob and, ultimately, to the formation of the Montana Territory in 1864 to restore order. There have been recent attempts to rehabilitate Ives' reputation, but these will surely come too late to be of any personal advantage to him. They still hang him in effigy every year during "Vigilante Days" in Virginia City, MT.  -30-
