Southwestern Historical Wax Museum- Wild Bill Hickok

In this black and white photo, we see James Butler (Wild Bill) Hickok a split second before he is killed by Jack McCall. Probably most remembered for the way he died, Hickok was also a famous gunfighter. But his notoriety got the best of him while he was playing poker in deadwood South Dakota. The poker hand he was holding when he died, aces and eights, is now known as the dead man's hand.

A close up of Jack McCall with his gun at Wild Bill's head. (Well, his back. But it should be his head)
