Part Thirteenth: Appendix

Martin here includes the confession of George Dunning, a hired hand for the Invasion, written while Dunning was in jail in Buffalo following the Invasion. On Oct. 14, 1892, Asa Mercer included the 44-page longhand statement word-for-word in his Northwestern Live Stock Journal. The confession included Invasion planning and  events and implicated most Wyoming participants, in particular the expedition's planners and leaders, especially H. B. Ijams. Dunning's confession appeared as an appendix in Mercer's book Banditti of the Plains published in 1894. (Page 138 missing)
