Doolin-Dalton "Wild Bunch" Gang / Battle of Ingalls Memorial

A monument and map for the Battle of Ingalls, where in 1893 the Doolin-Dalton gang -- known as "The Wild Bunch" and "Oklahombres" -- widely regarded as the last outlaw gang of the Wild West, made their final stand against law enforcement. It served as an inspiration for the 1973 Eagles album, Desperado. The old Ingalls Hotel and Stables still stand 100 yards from the location of the gunfight.
