death of Ned Christie
|Paden Tolbert is credited with the only use of a cannon against civilians by law enforcement
officers in history. Tolbert headed up the posse that cornered Ned Christie in a mountain
stronghold. After attempting to blast him out with a three pounder cannon, they finally
succeeded in blasting a hole in the walls with dynamite, resulting in the shooting death of
Christie. Tolbert is also credited with introducing Alberta peaches to Clarksville Arkansas, for
which the town is still famous to this day.
