Overview

Written with Lead: America's Most Famous and Notorious Gunfights from the Revolutionary War to Today by William Weir

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.

The author does a poor job of telling both sides of the story of these legendary gun fights. It is clear that he has another agenda then a historical interpretation. There are many different accounts of how these gunfights went down and it is not enough to simply to the tell the story that fits with his agenda.
