Dusk seen reflected in one of the windows of main street, Nevada City, Montana (USA). These buildings date back to the gold rush that swept Alder Gulch in the 1860’s. This cabin belonged to Dr. Byam, who arrived in Bannack on March 1, 1863. After his claim was jumped, he moved to Virginia City, where he became a judge in the miner’s court. Dr. Byam presided over the trial and hanging of George Ives, who was notorious as a leader of the road agents. It was after this famous trial that the Vigilantes were formed, of which Dr. Byam was considered a member.
