BANNACK GALLOWS

This is a modern reconstruction at the Montana ghost town. The original was destroyed by vandals after being used to hang five men. One was the town's outlaw sheriff, Henry Plummer, who was leader of a gang of murderous robbers called "The Innocents." After pleading his innocence, Plummer asked the Vigilantes to "give me a good drop." They obliged.
