This program discusses the crime, events leading up to it and the aftermath.

Dr. Mark E. Miller, a retired Wyoming state archaeologist, will lead the program. His great-grandfather, Ike C. Miller, was Carbon County sheriff at the time Big Nose George was hanged in Rawlins by a group of angry citizens.
