ABOUT THE BATTLE –

On Saturday, November 19, 1881, in the town of Fishers, IN (then known as Fishers Station) a rowdy, cantankerous character by the name of Hampton “Hamp” West (he was also a grave robber) started a ruckus that culminated in a notorious battle that took place right here in Fishers. Commotion and mayhem ensued until it snowballed into an explosion of violence that left one person dead, 32 injured, and caused the destruction of two buildings.

So infamous was the occurrence that it made national headlines and put Fishers, IN, on the map.

Brass knuckles, pool cues and fists will be flying – not to mention a few gunshots (assimilated, of course) onSeptember 8, 2019, at The Historic Ambassador House & Heritage Gardens. This is a once in a lifetime chance to see the BATTLE OF MUDSOCK reenacted by the Fishers Police and the Fishers Firefighters who join forces with The Historic Ambassador House and The Award-winning Nickel Plate Players as they present the BATTLE OF MUDSOCK!


ALL PROCEEDS will go to The Historic Ambassador House, The Fishers Police Foundation and The Fishers Fire Foundation.
