Well, I tried to find on the internet some of the laws, or the law ideas of the wild west. I tried searching for American 19th century laws as well, didn't find anything.

If someone of you can direct me? It doesn't have to be all of the laws, just the major ones. It could be of course, the 19th century laws of the USA, but it has to be used in those desert cities of the wild west.

An example of the level of detail im looking for: If someone has robbed a bank he will be hung publicly.

<deco> i cant possibly find a list of laws at the wild west era
<Deman> that's because most laws were on a town by town basis
<Deman> very decentralized
<Deman> Inter-city enforcement was often handled through bounties
<Deman> We're talkin cities miles and miles and miles away from eachother, easily a few days travel between them

Hmm, maybe you can help me find some rules in a certain city.

Maybe I can use some certain city laws, one of the more popular cities..

What were the bigger cities back then (wild west towns that is)
