Did you know that Bonnie & Clyde's thirteenth and final victim, Constable William "Cal" Campbell, was killed in a shootout near Commerce, Oklahoma in April of 1934?
Or that in 1908, when the Oklahoma City Fire Department began using horses to pull their equipment, they hired circus performers who had experience with horses as firefighters - and they practiced acrobatic routines in and atop the station between fires?
