On the afternoon of April 9th, 1892, Nate Champion was holed up in a bullet riddled cabin. Outnumbered and surrounded, he had been able to hold off his attackers since sunrise. But once they managed to set the cabin on fire, Nate knew he had to act and act fast. He could stay inside and burn to death, or leave and face the small army of 50 paid killers that waited outside. Killers hired by cattle barons to get rid of small ranchers just like Champion. Today’s tale is that of an underdog. A true working class hero. The little guy versus the bully. So saddle up, oil your guns, and get ready to celebrate the life and death of Nate Champion on this OPEN RANGE episode of Bloody Beaver Podcast.
