The first was Bill Mulvey, who was rampaging through town, drunk, shooting out mirrors and whisky bottles behind bars. Citizens warned Mulvey to behave, because Hickok was sheriff. Mulvey angrily declared that he had come to town to kill Hickok. When he saw Hickok, he leveled his cocked rifle at him. Hickok waved his hand past Mulvey at some onlookers and yelled, "Don't shoot him in the back; he is drunk.

The second killed by Hickok was Samuel Strawhun, a cowboy, who was causing a disturbance at 1 a. Hickok said he had "tried to restore order". At the coroner's inquest into Strawhun's death, despite "very contradictory" evidence from witnesses, the jury found the shooting justifiable. On July 17, , Hickok was attacked by two troopers from the 7th U.

Lonergan pinned Hickok to the ground, and Kyle put his gun to Hickok's ear. When Kyle's weapon misfired, Hickok shot Lonergan, wounding him in the knee, and shot Kyle twice, killing him. Hickok was not re-elected to office. On April 15, , Hickok became marshal of Abilene, Kansas. The outlaw John Wesley Hardin arrived in Abilene at the end of a cattle drive in early Hardin was a well-known gunfighter and is known to have killed more than 27 men.

Hickok later said he did not know that "Wesley Clemmons" was Hardin's alias and that he was a wanted outlaw. He told Clemmons Hardin to stay out of trouble in Abilene and asked him to hand over his guns, and Hardin complied. Hardin left Kansas before Hickok could arrest him. Hickok and Phil Coe , a saloon owner and acquaintance of Hardin's, had a dispute that resulted in a shootout. The Bull's Head Saloon in Abilene had been established by the gambler Ben Thompson and Coe, his partner, businessman and fellow gambler.

Citizens of the town complained to Hickok, [45] who requested that Thompson and Coe remove the bull. They refused, so Hickok altered it himself. Picks on rebels, especially Texans, to kill. He seemed to have respect for Hickok's abilities and replied, "If Bill needs killing why don't you kill him yourself? Hickok's retort is one of the West's most famous sayings though possibly apocryphal: Was he shooting back?

On October 5, , Hickok was standing off a crowd during a street brawl when Coe fired two shots. Hickok ordered him to be arrested for firing a pistol within the city limits.

Coe claimed that he was shooting at a stray dog, and then suddenly turned his gun on Hickok, who fired first and killed Coe. Theophilus Little, the mayor of Abilene and owner of the town's lumber yard, recorded his time in Abilene by writing in a notebook which was ultimately given to the Abilene Historical Society.

Writing in , he detailed his admiration of Hickok and included a paragraph on the shooting that differs considerably from the reported account:. As vile a character as I ever met for some cause Wild Bill incurred Coe's hatred and he vowed to secure the death of the marshal. Not having the courage to do it himself, he one day filled about cowboys with whiskey intending to get them into trouble with Wild Bill, hoping that they would get to shooting and in the melee shoot the marshal. But Coe "reckoned without his host".

Wild Bill had learned of the scheme and cornered Coe, had his two pistols drawn on Coe. Just as he pulled the trigger one of the policemen rushed around the corner between Coe and the pistols and both balls entered his body, killing him instantly. In an instant, he pulled the triggers again sending two bullets into Coe's abdomen Coe lived a day or two and whirling with his two guns drawn on the drunken crowd of cowboys, "and now do any of you fellows want the rest of these bullets?

Hickok was relieved of his duties as marshal less than two months after accidentally killing Deputy Williams, this incident being only one of a series of questionable shootings and claims of misconduct.

In one show he shot the spotlight when it focused on him. He was released from the group after a few months. In , Hickok was diagnosed by a doctor in Kansas City, Missouri , with glaucoma and ophthalmia. Martha Jane Cannary, known popularly as Calamity Jane , claimed in her autobiography that she was married to Hickok and had divorced him so he could be free to marry Agnes Lake, but no records have been found that support her account.

The wagon train arrived in Deadwood in July Hickok left his new bride a few months later, joining Charlie Utter 's wagon train to seek his fortune in the goldfields of South Dakota. Shortly before Hickok's death, he wrote a letter to his new wife, which read in part, "Agnes Darling, if such should be we never meet again, while firing my last shot, I will gently breathe the name of my wife—Agnes—and with wishes even for my enemies I will make the plunge and try to swim to the other shore.

When a seat opened up at the table, a drunk man named Jack McCall sat down to play. Hickok encouraged McCall to quit the game until he could cover his losses and offered to give him money for breakfast. Although McCall accepted the money, he was apparently insulted. The next day, Hickok was playing poker again.

He usually sat with his back to a wall so he could see the entrance, but the only seat available when he joined the game was a chair facing away from the door. He twice asked another man at the table, Charles Rich, to change seats with him, but Rich refused. The bullet emerged through Hickok's right cheek and struck another player, riverboat Captain William Massie, in the left wrist.

McCall's motive for killing Hickok is the subject of speculation, largely concerning McCall's anger at Hickok's having given him money for breakfast the day before, after McCall had lost heavily. McCall was summoned before an informal "miners' jury" an ad hoc local group of miners and businessmen.

McCall claimed he was avenging Hickok's earlier slaying of his brother, which may have been true. After bragging about killing Hickok, McCall was re-arrested. The second trial was not considered double jeopardy because of the irregular jury in the first trial and because Deadwood was in Indian country.

The new trial was held in Yankton , the capital of the Dakota Territory. Hickok's brother, Lorenzo Butler, traveled from Illinois to attend the retrial. McCall was found guilty and sentenced to death. Leander Richardson , a reporter, interviewed McCall shortly before his execution and wrote an article about him for the April issue of Scribner's Monthly.

Butler spoke with McCall after the trial and said McCall showed no remorse. As I write the closing lines of this brief sketch, word reaches me that the slayer of Wild Bill has been rearrested by the United State authorities, and after trial has been sentenced to death for willful murder. He is now at Yankton, D.

At the [second] trial it was suggested that [McCall] was hired to do his work by gamblers who feared the time when better citizens should appoint Bill the champion of law and order — a post which he formerly sustained in Kansas border life, with credit to his manhood and his courage. The cemetery was moved in , and when McCall's body was exhumed, the noose was found still around his neck. Hickok was playing five-card stud when he was shot.

He was holding two pairs: The identity of the fifth card his " hole card " is the subject of debate. Charlie Utter , Hickok's friend and companion, claimed Hickok's body and placed a notice in the local newspaper, the Black Hills Pioneer , which read:. Hickock [ sic ] Wild Bill formerly of Cheyenne , Wyoming. All are respectfully invited to attend. Almost the entire town attended the funeral, and Utter had Hickok buried with a wooden grave marker reading:.

Pard, we will meet again in the happy hunting ground to part no more. Good bye, Colorado Charlie, C. Hickok is known to have fatally shot six men and is suspected of having killed a seventh McCanles. Despite his reputation, [67] Hickok was buried in the Ingelside Cemetery, Deadwood's original graveyard. This cemetery filled quickly, and in , on the third anniversary of his original burial, Utter paid to move Hickok's remains to the new Mount Moriah Cemetery. As a result, calcium carbonate from the surrounding soil had replaced the flesh, leading to petrifaction.

One of the workers, Joseph McLintock, wrote a detailed description of the re-interment. McLintock used a cane to tap the body, face, and head, finding no soft tissue anywhere. The original wooden grave marker was moved to the new site, but by it had been destroyed by souvenir hunters whittling pieces from it, and it was replaced with a statue.

This, in turn, was destroyed by souvenir hunters and replaced in by a life-sized sandstone sculpture of Hickok. This, too, was badly defaced, and was then enclosed in a cage for protection. The enclosure was cut open by souvenir hunters in the s, and the statue was removed.

Hickok is currently interred in a ten-foot 3 m square plot at the Mount Moriah Cemetery, surrounded by a cast-iron fence, with a U. It has been reported that Calamity Jane was buried next to him, according to her dying wish.

Four of the men on the self-appointed committee who planned Calamity's funeral Albert Malter, Frank Ankeney, Jim Carson, and Anson Higby later stated that, since Hickok had "absolutely no use" for Jane in this life, they decided to play a posthumous joke on him by laying her to rest by his side. Hickok's favorite guns were a pair of Colt Navy Model.

They had ivory grips and nickel plating and were ornately engraved with "J. Hickok—" on the backstrap. Hickok has remained one of the most popular and iconic figures of the American Old West and is still frequently depicted in popular culture, including literature, film, and television. It is a loose adaptation of J. Hickok's life ending with his infamous aces and eights card hand.

The film received mixed reviews, and currently holds a 5. Hickok's birthplace is now the Wild Bill Hickok Memorial and is a listed historic site under the supervision of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.
