James “Wild Bill” Hickok: Plains Justice :- Watch James “Wild Bill” Hickok: Plains Justice on Youtube on Fire, “Wild Bill” Hickok (born James Butler Hickok) (May 27, 1837 – August 2, 1876) was a folk character of the American Old West known for his skills as a scout, lawman, gunfighter and gambler. He told many outlandish tales about his life and was regarded as a liar by many of his contemporaries. Some contemporary reports of his exploits are known to be fiction, but along with his own stories are the basis for much of his fame and reputation. Hickok was born and raised on a farm in rural Illinois. He went west at age 18 as a fugitive from justice, first working as a stagecoach driver, then as a lawman in the frontier territories of Kansas and Nebraska. He fought (and spied) for the Union Army during the American Civil War and gained publicity after the war as a scout, marksman, actor and professional gambler. Hickok was involved in several notable shootouts. He was shot from behind and killed while playing poker in a saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory (now South Dakota) by an unsuccessful gambler, Jack McCall. The hand of cards which he supposedly held at the time of his death (black aces and eights) has become known as the “Dead Man’s Hand”. Hickok was born May 27, 1837 in Homer, Illinois (now Troy Grove, Illinois) to William and Polly (Butler) Hickok. He was the fourth of six children, and his father died in 1852 when Hickock was 15.
