Gene Hamilton walked the heated streets of Yuma, Arizona Territory and felt good. But, the heat was almost unbearable. He did try to stop a fight in front of the saloon. Big mistake. He turned and struck someone he thought was interfering with his peacemaking: Sheriff Sweeney. The 3 months in Yuma Territorial Prison was the sentence. It wasn't long before he found his ranch was taken away.
