Tom Clavin talked about his book Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West, in which he provides a history of Dodge City, Kansas, once considered one of the most violent towns in the West. In his book, the author recalls Dodge City’s start as a military site and its subsequent expansion due to the increased proclivity of railroads and frontier trade. Its notorious reputation eventually garnered the attention of law enforcement agencies, led by Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, who worked to establish law and order. close
