The Outlaw Badge portrays a very wild era in American history. Because of the Civil War, the US Army was unable to supply enough troops to safely control the new territories opening up for settlement in the West.

Buffalo Soldiers were sent out to try to prevent the many Indian raids on farms and towns. These soldiers were also there to man the many forts and territorial prisons, enforcing the law on what was often a lawless land.

I've put a lot of research into this book, in order to make the setting as realistic as possible. When compared with actual events of the times, the Outlaw Badge doesn't seem very fictional!

The year is 1865, and when the Civil War comes to an end, Indian conflicts will explode across the West...
