Sutler Conflict

By Michael King

Colonel Richard Irving Dodge was given command of Fort Dodge on June 3, 1872. He arrived at Fort Dodge the next day. Upon his arrival, he found the post in an influx of an unruly population. His orders were to ensure Fort Dodge became an oasis of order and to establish the rule of law amid conditions that verged on chaos. The story of the Sutler Conflict written and produced by Mike King gives the true accounts of the motivation behind the organization of a town company to be called Dodge City Kansas. Brad Smalley provides the listeners with a first-person narrative of the conflict between Captain Moore and Rife as the story concludes with the Lieutenant Turner incident forcing Colonel Dodge decision to layout plans to organize a township five miles west of the Fort.
