A Spur Award-winning AuthorThe side-wheel steamboat Mittie Stephens was lost on a dark night in February 1869 on Caddo Lake near the Texas-Louisiana border. Of the 107 people on board, sixty-one perished. Unbeknownst to almost all of them, the Mittie Stephens had been selected by the army to secretly transport a payroll in gold. In pursuit of its cargo, a group of ex-Confederates worked out an elaborate strategy to seize the boat.
