How honestly are the characters that we find in literature and movies really portrayed, and how much are they just products of media and legend? In this series, delve into four real life people; Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill, and Jesse James.

Wild Bill

The figure responsible for the dead man’s hand in poker. He began his career by protecting stage coaches and, after being attacked by a bear and winning, he went on to join the army. It was there where he met a reporter from the New York Herald who proclaimed that he had killed over 100 men.

This was when he shot to fame, eventually becoming a marshal in the City of Abilene and a very famous gunfighter.
