James Butler Hickok (1837-1876), better known as Wild Bill Hickcok was a folk hero of the American Old West. He came to the west as a fugitive from justice, first working as a stagecoach driver before becoming a lawman in Kansas and Nebraska. Hickok was involved in several notable shoot outs. He was shot and killed while playing poker in the Nuttal & Mann's Saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory.
Charles Earl Bowles (b. 1829; d.after 1888), better known as Black Bart, was an English-born American Old West outlaw noted for the poetic messages he left behind after two of his robberies. Called Charley by his friends, he was also known as Charles Bolton, C.E. Bolton and Black Bart the Poet. Considered a gentleman bandit, he was one of the most notorious stagecoach robbers to operate in and around Northern California and southern Oregon during the 1870s and 1880s.
COMMODORE PERRY OWENS — While working as sheriff of Arizona’s Apache County, Commodore Perry Owens earned fame for his 1886 shoot-out in Holbrook, where he killed three of the Blevins crew and wounded a fourth in five shots. He went on to become the first sheriff of Navajo County from 1895-96. What we love most about this photo is the fact that Owens is wearing a buscadero rig, a holster style rarely seen in Old West photographs. – Courtesy Robert G. McCubbin Collection –
