Frank Eaton aka, “Pistol Pete”, The Man and the Legend – Presented by the BAHM

August 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE

The Bartlesville Area History Museum Education Coordinator, Betty Keim, will present an educational program
examining the life of,

“Frank Eaton, a.k.a. Pistol Pete, the Man and the Legend”
on August 1, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the
Bartlesville Public Library, inside the
2nd floor meeting room A.

After witnessing his father’s murder while living in Kansas, and at the early age of eight years old, Frank Eaton’s life was forever shaped by the experience. He vowed to hunt down and kill the six men who took his father’s life,
all them former Civil War Confederates, who served with Quantrill’s Raiders and became known as ‘Southern ‘Regulators’. 

Eaton eventually moved to Indian Territory and visited Fort Gibson to learn more about gun handling. This is when Commanding Officer John J. Coppinger is said to have given him a marksmanship badge, along with the nickname of “Pistol Pete” for his skills.

“He lived a long and colorful life, earning a reputation as a ‘fast gun’ with many talents and life experiences, one of which was earning the attention of a group of students who saw him leading Stillwater’s Armistice Day parade in 1923. Looking for a new mascot for their team, they approached him about becoming the model for their new mascot and he agreed.”, Jo Crabtree, BAHM Coordinator.
