These famous men all gathered around the cowtown of Dodge City in it's heyday... and were members of the political party called
"The Saloon Ticket". Gambling, drinking, girls and fun were the backbone of their society. They were also friends
of Luke Short and gathered for this photograph in 1883, when they came to his aid in what was called The Dodge City War.

City mayoral candidate, Tombstone Oriental Saloon partner) LUKE SHORT (The best and most famous Faro dealer of all time, co-owner
of the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City and the White Elephant Saloon in Fort Worth Texas) BAT MASTERSON (Lawman, Faro dealer).
