The Williamson Gang is a gang led by Bill Williamson, featured in Red Dead Redemption.

HistoryEdit

OriginsEdit

After the disbandment of the Van der Linde gang, whereof he was a member, Bill Williamson went on to establish his own gang at some point between 1899 and 1911. The gang eventually rose to prominence in New Austin, gaining a reputation as the most dangerous gang left in the West. Williamson and his gang took over Fort Mercer in Río Bravo, the former domain of the Del Lobo Gang

Red Dead RedemptionEdit

In 1911, John Marston confronts Bill Williamson and his gang, which results in him being shot and wounded. He is saved when a young woman named Bonnie MacFarlane and a ranch hand named Amos come across him and take him to a doctor.

Bill and his gang later raid Ridgewood Farm, killing the men and raping the women who live there, leaving only a few survivors. Marston, Marshal Johnson and the deputies rescue the remaining survivors at Ridgewood Farm, and then chase Williamson to Mercer Station. A gunfight ensues, and although Williamson flees, the posse successfully apprehends Bill's second-in-command, Norman Deek.

After Deek's capture, a member of the Williamson Gang arrives at the sheriff's office in Armadillo, explaining that Bonnie MacFarlane has been captured and will be hanged if they don't bring Norman Deek to Tumbleweed for exchange. Marston accompanies Marshal Johnson and his deputies, who are all ambushed as soon as they enter the town. Deek is swiftly gunned down by the Williamson gang during the shootout, while Marston saves Bonnie from being hanged by the gang. At the end, the Williamson gang's presence is eliminated from Tumbleweed, but Bill is not found among the dead.

Marston later recruits seven people to help him assault Fort Mercer and the Williamson gang. They use a Trojan horse strategy, where West Dickens presents his elixir to the outlaws, only for John to be hiding inside the wagon with a Gatling Gun, which leads to the gang’s annihilation. Although the Williamson Gang was eliminated, including the reinforcements that attempted to retake the fort, Bill managed to escape to Mexico on the previous day with the help of Javier Escuella.

Marston later travels to Mexico in pursuit of Bill and Javier. Marston either kills or captures Javier, then kills Bill with the help of Abraham Reyes and his rebels after being betrayed by the Mexican Army.

After the Williamson Gang had gone from Fort Mercer, the Mexican Banditos would eventually take over, with lots of stolen money; Marston can clear them out with the aid of Leon Galindo in his travels.

The assault on Fort Mercer spelled the end for the Williamson gang, having lost all of its members, its hideout and with its leader having gone into exile.
