Legends of the Wild West

Wild Bill Hickok, the legendary gunslinger and gambler, was hailed as one of the early Heroes of the West. Also renowned for his charm, persistent rumours suggest an intimate connection with the notorious yet enigmatic frontierswoman, Calamity Jane.

According to legend, Wild Bill met his end at a poker table in Saloon 10 in Deadwood. The hand he held at the time of his murder forever etched in history as the 'Dead Man’s Hand'.

Billy the Kid, depicted in the centre, became infamous as both a gunslinger and cattle rustler. His brief yet eventful life included at least nine murders and a daring prison escape.
