Did You Know? GALLAGHER'S PRIDE


Did You Know?

  • The fictional town of Briarwood, Montana is actually set in an area north of the real city of Bozeman, originally platted in 1864, though mentioned in journals by William Clark from his 1806 travels.

  • On the evening of December 26, 1881, the first Utah and Northern Union Pacific train entered Butte, Montana. However, in Gallagher’s Pride, the train doesn’t enter into Butte, but rather it’s implied that the train went into Bozeman. I took some liberties with the train location and timeline.
