The battle of Gibson

By Nathan

There I was on my trusty horse makel riding down the main dusty road on my way to good old Gibson. I had just left the cheese hill mines with a few bits of gold. They were pretty big bits and gave me enough money not to go back to the mines so I can spend my time repairing carts. So as I was riding back I saw that there was a heavy cloud of smoke in the air so me and makel rode a bit faster on the track so we could see where it was when we pasted the corner.

That was the night the night we organised and strategized for the battle of Gibson, we planned the battle of Gibson. In the morning we told the mail man that when he delivers the mail to the murphy boys that he should tell them to meet us at the main street in gibson at twelve noon on Sunday. It was now time for me and my fellow towns men to set up for the show down on Sunday. We cleaned our guns till there was not a speck of dirt left on them. we also made the finest bullets we possibly could and bought some of the finest whisky for us to celebrate with when we disempower the murphy boys.
The time had finally come it was twelve noon on Sunday then we saw
