The Seven Rivers Warriors
This section lists most of the members of the Seven Rivers Warriors. The Warriors were a gang of rustlers who were made up primarily of small-time ranchers from the Seven Rivers area of southeastern Lincoln County. The small-time ranchers had been victimized by John Chisum and his large herds, which ate up most of the grazing land. It was due to acts such as this that the ranchers grew "ill-tempered" towards Chisum and formed the Seven Rivers Warriors gang to steal Chisum's livestock and generally make life difficult for the old cattle baron. During the Lincoln County War, the Warriors fought for the Dolan cause due to the fact that Tunstall and McSween were business partners with their enemy Chisum. After the war ended, the Warriors began to turn on each other and shortly thereafter the gang dissolved.
