A picture of the Dalton Gang after a bank robbery in Coffeyville, Kansas. On October 5, 1892, the three Dalton brothers, Bob, Grot, and Emmett, with Tim Evans and Dick Broadwell, rode into Coffeyville where they robbed the town's two banks of nearly $25,000 before being ambushed by angry town citizens. Warned of the Dalton Gang's plans, townspeople opened fire on the gang, killing four members and wounding Emmett. Four Coffeyville citizens also lost their lives in the gun battle.
Emmett Dalton was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in this crime. He was pardoned after serving 14 years.
