Written with Lead

America's Most Famous and Notorious Gunfights from the Revolutionary War to Today

Book Description

Written with Lead offers a compelling narrative history of twenty-one tragic episodes in American history-all involving firearms, heroes, and the ongoing public fascination with guns and gunfighters. Spotlighting events such as the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and the bloody ambush of Bonnie and Clyde, and featuring three new essays (including one on the siege at Waco), Weir explores the history, culture, and mythology of guns in surprising and unpredictable ways.
