Historian Jim Dullenty said almost everything written about Harry Tracy is malarkey. A 1982 movie about Tracy billed him as the “Last of the Wild Bunch” and featured him as a train robber. Except for Tracy’s name, that movie is malarkey.
The 1895 Wisconsin census places him in Chittamo as a bachelor neighbor to his mother. In the late summer of 1895, he became an outlaw when he stole $2 from a fellow threshing crew member in Dakota territory.
