John Wallace "Jack" Crawford was an American adventurer, educator & author known as one of the most popular performers in the late 19th century. His daring actions to carry the news the 350 miles to Ft. Laramie in 6 days of General George Crook's victory in the Battle of Slim Buttes furing the Great Sioux War made him instantly famous. After his stints in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and "General Crook's Horsemeat March", he served as a special agent for the U.S. Department of Justice spending 4 years investigating illegal liquor traffic and fighting alcoholism on Indian reservations. During his work for the US Government, he began his career as an entertainer in 1893 which continued until 1898. He wrote poetry, held "lectures" across the United States where he told of his many adventures in the Wild West, and where he asked his audiences to be careful and foreswear liquor in order to lead a more fulfilled life. He was a prolific writer and published seven books of poetry, wrote more than one hundred short stories and copyrighted four plays. In fact, his poem "Only a Miner Killed" has been said to be the basis for Bob Dylan's song "Only a Hobo".
