Nate Champion
Birth: Sep. 29, 1857
Texas, USA
Death: Apr. 9, 1892
Johnson County
Wyoming, USA

Wild West Folk Hero to some and Cattle Rustler to others, Nate Champion was the leader of the Small Rancher Association who fought the Cattle Barons in the infamous Johnson County War of the 1890's. Nate Champion was gunned down after battling more than 50 assailants working for the Cattle Barons. Nate was able to hold them off for most of the day, but was driven from his cabin after they set it on fire. (bio by: Curt Benge)

I have a photo of Nate sitting on his horse but Find a Grave says we don't need any more so won't let me load it up. Seems a photo would be better than a sketch.
