Regulator Lincoln County Badgestory inside the box:
The Regulators of Lincoln County were formed in 1878 after the murder of rancher John Henry Tunstall by the corrupt Sheriff's posse. When the law refused to go after Tunstall's murderers, his ranch hands were deputized by the Justice of the Peace, forming a posse known as the Regulators. Thus began the Lincoln County War. They were given warrants to serve on the Sheriff's men, but as it turns out, they mostly served bullets.
Famous Regulators included Billy the Kid, Frank MacNab, and Henry Newton Brown.
