Historical Note: To this day, the most provocative public symbol in the state of Montana is a set of numbers—3-7-77—whose meaning is a complete and utter mystery to everyone living there. For generations, the figures have been associated with the vaunted vigilantes who cleaned up the gold camps in 1864 and earned a place in history as great heroes. Folklore holds that the vigilantes used 3-7-77 as an ultimatum to banish malefactors whose presence was considered a danger to public order. The oldest, most popular interpretation of the numbers is that they represented an exact period of time—three hours, seven minutes, and seventy-seven seconds—that the vigilantes gave their targets to get out of town or face violent retribution.
