The Trial of Tom Horn
with attorney and historian John W. Davis

Tuesday, May 2nd
1 pm

The Big Piney Library is proud to offer a free presentation by author, historian and attorney John W. Davis on Tuesday, May 2nd at the Big Piney Library at 1 pm. John W. Davis's "The Trial of Tom Horn" examines the conviction of Tom Horn which marked a major milestone in the hard-fought battle against vigilantism in Wyoming. Davis presents every twist and turn of a fascinating trial, and his account illuminates a larger narrative between the power of wealth and the forces of law and order. Participants will understand what an enormous challenge to democracy vigilantism was in early Wyoming and how the fight against willful cattle barons shaped the history of the state.

John W. Davis graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law in 1968 and practiced law in Worland for over 42 years, retiring in 2015. "The trial of Tom Horn" is presented by the Big Piney Library and the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its ThinkWY Road Scholars Tours program. The Wyoming Humanities Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional support from private donors and the Wyoming Legislature.
