Statue and Grave of Liver-Eating Johnson
John Garrison was born in New Jersey in 1824, but he became famous in the Wild West as Liver-Eating Johnson. His Indian wife was killed by other Indians, which set him on a murderous rampage of revenge that lasted for years and produced numerous dead Indians. Johnson got his nickname because he would cut out and eat the livers of his victims. Once, when temporarily captured, he killed his Indian guard and ate his leg.
Robert Redford was so taken by Johnson's story that he starred in a film very loosely based on his life in 1972. Two years later, Johnson, now a posthumous celebrity, was dug out of his Montana grave and reburied in a small Wyoming cemetery that was created as part of a Western theme town attraction. The town claims that over 2,000 people attended Johnson's reburial, "probably the largest burial service in the history of Wyoming."
