Wellman certainly had more reason than Hickok to kill McCanles. But without proof the question must remain unanswered. One thing is certain, however. The so-called McCanles Massacre, a minor event by frontier standards, propelled James Butler Hickok toward a notoriety that he may or may not have sought.
Its impact upon his burgeoning legend was paramount. Newtonia, MO October 28, National Park Service ang. Bill was a fine scout and detective.
He entered the rebel camps, was arrested as a sp, and even taken before Gen. Price; but his inordinate nerve and great self-possession not only saved him, but made him an orderly on Price's staff. He eventually escaped and returned to me with valuable information during the battle of Newtonia. This reaction was shared by Henry M. Stanley, the young Welsh-born reporter for the St. He interviewed Hickok at Fort Zarah on April 4. Informacje z plakatu, m. Some years ago he had shot a desperado in Missouri following 'particular aggravation.
Bill watched the first rehearsal patiently, then he went to the stage manager. Maeder drives him out of the ranch with a broom in the third act.
Why, I never killed such a coyote as that in my life! It's all wrong, pardner! It's all wrong making him out such a squaw-man as all that. Jack Omohundro, known as Texas Jack, was with the show, and when the curtain fell at the close of the first act he and I and Wild Bill were supposed to stand out near the front of the stage clasping rescued maidens to our breasts in the white glare of calcium.
But Wild Bill was never out there where he belonged. He invariably hung back in the shadows at the rear or remained half-hidden behind a painted tree or rock. He was a poor hand to pose or show off and hated to have a lot of people staring at him. One night when the spot light found him leaning against a gnarled oak in the background, it made him mad, and he took a shot at the spot light machine in the central aisle of the balcony, shattered the bull's eye and broke the machine.
The show had to go on to the end without the usual calcium effects. If Wild Bill was not a star on the stage, he was a sensation off it.
Crowds followed him everywhere. I didn't wonder at it, for aside from his picturesque Western garb, he was one of the handsomest men I ever knew. Edwin Ebert went before the coroner on July 22 and, after being sworn, stated: Several of the witnesses reported that Hickok and Tutt made statements to each other that they could not hear or understand. None of them divulged what they had heard, which is unfortunate, since their statements might add credence to the oft-stated suspicion that there was something between the two men besides the dispute over cards.
However, truth was not served by the published report of the trial. Among the documents that came to light after the recent recataloging of county records was the original version of the judge's opinion, a list of witnesses for the defense and prosecution, and the case file involving Tutt that had apparently lain undisturbed for years. Sadly, lacking are the statements made by the trial witnesses there were twenty-two others besides the eight questioned by the coroner.
Curiously, Major Barnitz was not called to give evidence, despite the fact that he had witnessed the fight and ordered Hickok's arrest. After examining the evidence that available in the press and the newly discovered documents , I find hints of a deeper rift between Hickok and Tutt than is apparent in the available statements.
Wild Bill and His Era: Press of the Pioneers zapis cyfrowy ze zbioru biblioteki Uniwersytet Kalifornijski w Berkeley , , s. Honesty claimed that on the evening before the fight, the pair played cards together and fell out over an alleged debt owed by Hickok to Tutt from a horse deal. Tutt then picked up Hickok's watch and said he would keep it until the debt was paid, adding that he would pack the watch on the square next day. Hickok warned him that it was a health hazard, but Tutt ignored him.
According to contemporary and later versions, Tutt walked onto the square from the front of the courthouse at 6 P. Hickok appeared from the southern side, they advanced upon each other and, when about fifty yards apart, drew their pistols and opened fire. Tutt missed, but Wild Bill's ball struck him in the heart. Hickok then turned on his heel and offered to fight Tutt's friends.
Controversy over this incident has raged for years, over both the distance between the antagonists and the cause of the fight. Only very recently have statements by eyewitnesses come to light. The most publicized was that of Albert Barnitz, a colonel in the Second Ohio Volunteer Cavalry and, at the time, military commandant of the Post of Springfield. He wrote down his impression within hours of the event, confirming Honesty's version of the fight and the dispute over the watch.
He was first charged with murder, but the charge was later reduced to manslaughter. Barnitz wrote that public opinion was about equally divided between both characters. Hickok was tried on August 5 and 6, , and was acquitted. However, the verdict aroused much controversy. It was welcomed by those who had employed or served with him during the later war. Nichols' Captain Honesty, was, as mentioned earlier, actually Richard Bentley Owen, a much respected quartermaster.
Together with several others, he put up Hickok's bail. Two of the jury members, J. Julian and John Foster were reported to be former officers who had served with Hickok under Gen. As late as it was reported that the original transcript was on file at the courthouse but that it disappeared when the place was visited by a group of writers. It is now doubted that a transcript of the trial ever existed. All the records that remained were a number of subpoenas for witnesses and a few other trial documents.
However, in , when the records of the Greene County Archives were recataloged and a number of boxes that had remained untouched for more than a century were opened, several important and startling documents relative to the shoot-out came to light These court records also revealed the information that in Springfield, Dave Tutt was generally called Little Dave Tutt, presumably in reference to his size. Custer's remarks might explain why some have suggested that Hickok was the general's favorite scout.
If that were true, it might account for his reputation as a scout and Indian fighter. But Custer himself did not suggest anything of the kind. His comments are nonetheless revealing: He was a Plainsman in every sense of the word, yet unlike any other of his class My Life on the Frontier [on-line]. Smith, Abilene Police Department ang. The real victim of that encounter was, of course, Michael Williams.
Williams, a former Kansas City bartender employed as a bouncer by the Novelty Theater in Abilene, had come to town presumably to make extra money. He was due to return home that very night.
Instead he was shipped home to his wife in a box. Hickok paid for his funeral, and it was later reported that he visited Mrs. Williams and explained to her what had happened. He declared that he regretted Coe's death, but one suspects that it was the death of Williams that really disturbed him — there are stories of him weeping as he laid his friend on the billiard table.
The next day he procured a sawed-off shotgun, which he carried under his coat. Myths and Realities of Frontier Violence: A Look at the Gunfighter Saga. Two years later in Abilene, the City Council dismissed him without a word of thanks.. Old West Kansas portal internetowy [on-line].

Hickok's decision to marry late in life may have been dictated by a number of factors that are no longer known.
College Station , Teksas: Creative Publishing Company, , s. Hickok's assassination inspired many tall yarns. Some claimed that the very moment McCoy fired his fatal shot, Hickok's reflexes were still so good that he pulled both his pistols before slumping sideways to the floor. Those who witnessed his death swiftly discredited those stories. The truth was that Hick was taken completely unaware. From the nature of the wound death must necessarily have been instantaneous.
His body then slumped sideways and fell from the stool to the floor, his poker hand spilling from his fingers, still crimped from holding his cards. I have seen many dead men on the field of battle and in civil life, but Wild Bill was the prettiest corpse I have ever seen. His long moustache was attractive, even in death, and his long tapering fingers looked like marble.
