blog image
Leading the auction for Rock island’s Premier sale in December is the “Captain Jack” Winchester model 1873 carrying and estimate of $175,000-375,000 . This rifle displayed at both the New York Exhibition of Industry and Science in 1898 and at the Pan-American International Exposition in Buffalo.

 In 1902, it was presented by Winchester to one of the true Western folk heroes: John Crawford, better known as Captain Jack or “The Poet Scout.” Crawford served in the 48th Pennsylvania Infantry during the Civil War and was wounded at both Spotsylvania and Petersburg. During the Black Hills Gold Rush he joined the Black Hills Rangers protecting the local populace from Indian attacks as their chief scout. He also worked as a journalist in the Gold Camps and then as a war correspondent during the Bighorn and Yellowstone Expeditions. Crawford became friends with William “Buffalo Bill” and replaced him as head scout when Cody returned to the East. He rose to national fame after riding 350 miles in just six days in order to deliver news of Crook’s triumph over Chief American Horse at the Battle of Slim Buttes in September 1876 during the Great Sioux War. You can read more about “Captain Jack” in the online catalog which includes a wide range of other desirable lots
