Sunday Spotlight: Pearl Hart’s Revolver

March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

March 26 @ 1:00 pm 1:30 pm

“There have been many female stage-robbers in books and stories, but only one in the flesh … Pearl Hart, the woman who ‘held up’ the Globe stage at Cane Springs canon, Arizona, on May 30th of this year, in company with a male partner, had lived a hard life on the frontier …” Cosmopolitan Magazine, October 1899. Curator Michael Grauer will share about the only female stagecoach robber in the Old West, Pearl Hart, (who also happens to be Grauer’s great grand aunt) in the context of the revolver taken from her at the time of her arrest. From there, explore the rest of outLAWman and enjoy the exhibition at your own pace. Free for members or with Museum admission.
