The Rufus Buck Gang was a group of black and Creek Indian outlaws who ran through Oklahoma in 1895. The leader of the group, a man named Rufus Buck, had a deep-rooted hatred for white men. The rest of his crew was comprised of Lewis Davis, Sam Sampson, Maoma July and Lucky Davis.

Young and angry, Buck and his gang spent 13 days on a crime spree through the city of Okmulgee. They killed the city’s marshall, John Garrett, and raped white women. Also among the murdered was Benton Callahan’s assistant, who was killed after Callahan outran the gunshots of the outlaws.
