Featuring historical crime stories, American Lawmen travels back in time to a violent and lawless world where disputes are often settled with a revolver and a shallow grave. Each episode presents tales of the few brave citizens who strapped on a badge and gun, and placed their own lives on the line in the fight for justice.
Told from the perspective of those who stepped up to protect the innocent, these pioneering lawmen pursue bank robbers armed with machine guns and dynamite, blood-thirsty cattle thieves, and even a band of Southern gentlemen plotting to kill a president. It’s a thrilling chase that chronicles the birth of law enforcement in America.
