There's a lot more to this story, including many pictures, fascinatingly recounted here.

Sounds like they mostly just humiliated the husband nationally by publicising a private affair. Also, the incident just brought about what the wife and her lover wanted much more quickly.

If you have a look at the photos on the site you'll see that Volo was still, pretty much, a one horse (as seen in the photo) town and, even though Chicago has all but enveloped it today I'll lay odds that Volo was a long way from any formal 'justice' back then.

We could use some more of this 'frontier justice' today.

I have been there many times Expat - I don't think they even got that first horse yet!

Look, Wayne, there's 1 (one) horse in the picture!
