Gabriel Dumont

Gabrielle Dumont was arguably one of the best military commanders of his time. He successfully won several key battles against Dominion of Canada forces, despite being outnumbered and outgunned. He was a close advisor and confidant of Louis Riel, although they did not always agree on military strategy. An extremely skilled marksman and horseback rider, after Riel was hung Gabriel fled south of the border and worked along with Moise Goulet in Bill Hickok’s Wild Wild West Show, where they were in great demand due to their extraordinary horsemanship and marksmanship.
