This was a re-enactment of an actual hanging. The guy had gotten drunk & shot up the town again. He had also ratted out the vigilantes. So they gave him the 7-7-77 (coffin is 7 feet down, 7 feet long, and 77 inches wide). It was the symbol used by the vigilantes.
FYI - we hung our first sheriff in Montana too, Henry Plumber LOL.
