    Back On Malone Road

    Okay, you should be back on Malone Road, heading back the way you got here, keeping those massive grain elevators on your right.

    Remember I told you that Hooker Jim's Camp was less than a mile from here? Well, when Ivan Applegate's brother Oliver heard his big brother Ivan was leading the army to arrest Captain Jack, Oliver decided to get his own gang of ragtag civilians together to round up Hooker Jim's Camp. Maybe Oliver was acting in support. Or, maybe it was just some brotherly competition. Regardless, not only was his decision illegal, it proved devastating. So while the soldiers arrived in Captain Jack's camp, Oliver, who had actually been liked by the Modocs until this point, rode with his gang into Hooker Jim's village and announced the struggle was over. That was the moment guns started firing in the distance.
