Shoot-Out On Second Street
Richmond, Kentucky

From: Madison County Heritage
Copyright, 1985

Most people know about the shoot-out at the O K Corral, but how many know
about the equally exciting battle of guns that took place on Second Street
in Richmond, Kentucky?

It all came about in the wild and woolly reconstruction days in Madison
County, Kentucky. Augustus (Gus) EDWARDS was the town marshal. Over near
Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky lived the SAUNDERS clan headed by
Walter SAUNDERS, an ex-confederate soldier who had been thrown out or the
Klu Klux Klan for disobedience. He had once been sheriff of Lincoln County.
He was a handsome man, standing six feet four inches tall, but did not
hesitate to use the gun to settle arguments. On Madison County fair day
George SAUNDERS', 18-year old brother of Walter, came to Richmond. He got
drunk and the town Marshall called him down for disturbing the peace. Young
SAUNDERS retired to the Garnet House Hotel (located on Second Street) where
he and some friends took out their injured pride by breaking chairs and
mirrors. Marshall EDWARDS and his brother, John, went to the hotel and
arrested SAUNDERS. SAUNDERS' friends jumped in and in the scramble the
youth pulled a switch-blade knife on the Marshall. EDWARDS countered by
hitting SAUNDERS with a loaded cane. Being only three in number, the
EDWARDS' party withdrew from the lobby.

More Lincoln Countians arrived at the hotel, including Tick BALLARD,
brother-in-law of Walter SAUNDERS. He was ministering to SAUNDERS' badly
lacerated head in a washroom when the Marshall returned with reinforcements
and a warrant. BALLARD refused to give up the injured youth, so EDWARDS
went back and got a warrant for BALLARD's arrest. Upon his return to the
hotel the battle was avoided by a compromise whereby young SAUNDERS was
surrendered, not to EDWARDS, but to the County Coroner. The attending
physician stated that SAUNDERS could not be moved from the hotel. This gave
BALLARD time to wire Walter SAUNDERS to come to Richmond and bring help.
Walter came but the trial was postponed and the SAUNDERS forces went home.
Someone in Richmond sent a postcard to SAUNDERS telling him that he had said
he could take Richmond but had chickened out.

So on the day before the trial of his brother, Walter and his henchmen came
to Richmond and put up at the Webster Hotel on Main Street just around the
corner from the Garnet House Hotel. After supper, SAUNDERS, two BALLARD
brothers, and a KENNEDY went around the corner to the Garnet House Hotel on
Second Street. There they met Gus EDWARDS and his brother Dan. Hot words
led to physical contact which led to drawn guns. Walter SAUNDERS was
killed, shot through the temple. Three other shots hit his body before it
hit the ground. Firing continued up and down the street and Tuck BALLARD
was killed. In addition four others were killed, two on each side. Gus
EDWARDS, John EDWARDS and William KENNEDY were all seriously wounded, but
recovered.

Twenty-six bullets were dug from the walls, doors, sills, lobby, bar room,
and hallways. Thus ended the bloody shoot-out on Second Street.
