The Notorious Buzzard Gang, Outlaws of the Welsh Mountains

New Holland police officer Michael Zimmerman will feature detailed information about a group of twenty men, seven of whom were brothers, who stormed through the area committing crimes all over Lancaster County from the late 1800s into the early 1900s—stealing horses and jewelry from homes, cracking safes, holding up stores and trains, and hosting fraudulent tent-revival meetings while cohorts stole attendees’ horses and chickens.
