Event Summary[edit]

  * From "A Brief History of Astro City" article by Elliot Mills
  • " something certainly happened in 1887, when the slaughterhouse district on the western shore of the Gaines River burned. Contemporary accounts, elaborated on in fanciful dime novels, tell of the attack of the “Howling Dead,” a ghostly stampede of bison and countless Indian warriors, staved off by a rare alliance of heroes, which varies from telling to telling, but generally includes Ironhorse and is cited as responsible for the death of Johnny Lightfoot."
