December 10, 1892: More than 150 Cincinnati and Dayton “sports” gathered at an empty warehouse for a dogfight, Club vs. Bones. A saloon keeper organized the event, so the crowd was well-liquored, and soon it wasn’t just dogs fighting. Then one of the bartenders took a bullet in the face. Was it a stray from the gun of his father-in-law, said saloon keeper, or deliberate murder? Taken from the pages of the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Hamilton (Ohio) Daily Democrat.
