"So We're back and let's see calamity. Jane meets wild bill hickok they fall in love love and settled down and have a family and live happily ever after i believe and that was it and now but they were really really close Everything i read really stressed the importance of their friendship over the years and how he really took her under his wing. And then when i started reading articles about whether or not she was Gay and in a situation where she was not allowed to live that way. And you know. Speculation abounds because of things like she dressed like a man and she hung out with them in and she never had any boyfriends There is There are stories of her getting married later in life and having a child but i also saw some articles that call that into question saying that. Maybe that didn't even happen. Well there's no certificates and right on record But it made me wonder about while bill hickok and if he was Maybe knew the deal and was sympathetic to what was going on so he was her beard. Well not beard. Because he didn't act as her boyfriend or anything but just maybe sympathetic to her I mean that's what i cooked up in my head. at least i gotcha. I had seen their their plenty of Articles that put the two together romantically Some say that she she yeah she was in him and he wasn't into her And it really kind of demonstrates like just how hard it is to pin down fact from fiction in her story in particular but the is it is factual that she in bill. Hitchcock were close friends at the very least in deadwood And that she was there when he was murdered in august of eighteen. Seventy six when he was shot in the back of the head. By jack mccall at point blank range while bill was At a at a gambling table in a saloon in in deadwood. Yeah which was very tough on her. Obviously so she left deadwood pretty shortly after that and then again spent you know the next Seems like ten or fifteen years really travelling all over the place. She never stayed in one place for long Think in the early eighteen eighty. She bought a ranch on the yellowstone river but only stayed there for about a year when to california only stayed there about a year eventually went to texas and this is where she supposedly Married clinton burke in el paso and then they went back to colorado and ran a hotel as a family but again i saw that called into speculation yes. Supposedly there are corroborating account of witnesses seeing her with a young child In some of these places so it is possible. She did have a daughter But again there's no birth certificates or anything anyway. Apparently some women came forward in the fifties or sixties and claim to be while bill hickok and calamity. jane's daughter oh but was was exposed as a fraud later. Yeah no that was disappointing. I thought so too right there at the end of the legs out from under you know Eventually close to nineteen hundred In eighteen ninety five she said. Hey you know what i can do. Really good is shoot a gun. And there's this guy out here but she really cross paths with all the the biggies of the old west She hooked up with buffalo bill in.

"We'll return to your story in just a moment. Now let's continue the story. Hickok as part of his martial duties was tasked with an unusual assignment one of the local taverns owned by a pair of men named Phil Coe and Ben Thompson featured a very large painting of a bowl with well a fully erect male Genitalia area which offended some of the town. I can imagine I mean. I don't want to imagine can one day while bill stepped into the tavern and broke the news that the painting would have have to be taken down or altered. And when Phil and Ben Refused Hickok stood there with his revolver until the necessary alterations were made. This is absolutely outrageous. He just a violation of my rights. You're a damn Yankee someone ought to kill you. Why don't we just kill him? Ourselves Been I could kill a crow on the wing. I'm sure I can take down one man to the crow have a pistol was a shooting. You I will be thank you for your time. Gentlemen keep your paintings in line next time. Okay the crow line would become one of bill's most famous another story to spread across America. But it was a line that simply added to the tension between COE and Hickok and on October fifth eighteen. Seventy one the tension boiled over someone shooting this late at night. Can't be good. Mike Thank you stay here. I'll check it out. I fill. Which one do you find the Dan shot? I was just shooting a stray dog. What's wrong with that? What's wrong with that You know look on Lost Hill GonNa take you in all right all right come on. It was just the dog log. You'RE GONNA kill him shooting a dog. Why don't we try to Q.? what the man do his job offer me. Screw you hit doc. Came it Mike Mike Mike. I told you to stay Mike. Say something if you guys know what's good for you you'll get on your ponies and get out of this town real quick. Yes Mike come on Mike. Let's get you inside all right. You're going to be okay Mike. Mike that's heartbreaking. It is in the confusion of the brawl and the attempt on his life by Phil Co Wild. Bill had accidentally killed his best friend and Mike Williams. This accidental murder changed bill forever. It said that Mike was the last man he ever killed. And according to some witnesses while bill grew more or aggressive in his martial duties he'd go in saloons kick everyone out and throw anyone who didn't comply out the windows and doors. You look up more aggressive in the dictionary. That's probably the picture you'll find. The of dictionaries had pictures although Hickok continued to be successful in cleaning up abilene his more aggressive style. Drew more complaints and more questionable incidents wants to attention not only two months after Mike Williams was killed while bill was officially dismissed from his martial duties. A very sad end for a very successful career. Wild bill never returned to law enforcement instead went back to his first love professional gambling into is still very good at. He is a poker hall all of Famer after all but of course even the best. Gamblers have their ups and downs. The nature of the game looking for more consistent form of income bill headed East East and tried his hand at the acting profession. He headed up to Niagara Falls New York to star in a Rodeo style. Show where he infamously fell flat on his face while trying to rope Obama Buffalo Wild. Bill's fall from grace was swift and painful when he joined up with his former war partner. Buffalo Bill Cody in New York City and participated in what would be the predecessor to the world famous buffalo. Bill's wild west show here. Wild bill was well paid and well fed and was able to gamble and get in bar fights as much as he wanted founded but he wasn't happing acting wasn't really Hickox Forte and he began to drink more and more before shows which as imagine just made things worse and frankly the east. It wasn't the place for wild bill. He was destined to live out his life on the wild frontier. He left the company of Buffalo Bill in eighteen. Seventy four and headed back on the open trail will his next two years were spent moving from town to town gambling and drinking the night away in many ways bill was a shell of his former self. His eyesight was failing due to Glaucoma Homa and he was no longer the perfect shot he once was. He tried his best to keep up his legend but his appearance grew more disheveled and the days he was sober were few and far between Lien. Who is often arrested for vagrancy during this period even if he had a successful night of gambling because he had the appearance of a warned down homeless man it really is like the classic Hollywood Hollywood downward spiral the Britney Spears of his era but like Britney there was always hope for the big comeback in March eighteen seventy six he finally married carried Agnes Lake and shortly thereafter left on a wagon to the dakotas hoping to find some gold and regained his life on the way to the DAKOTAS while Bill Cross paths asks with another Western legend Calamity Jane although their time together was certainly very brief calamity Jane would become obsessed with Hitchcock and later claimed that they were remarried through the ages? Many stories told about the secret love affair between wild bill and Calamity Jane and some even claimed to be their children but all the stories about Jane and the bill are easily proven false and even an attempt to bury j next bill was thwarted. That's another level of obsession. Even death trying to find a connection from what we know about wild bill. The one true love of his life was agnes. He wrote to her often as he made his trek to the dakotas but as much as he was excited about this new opportunity pretty he also suspected that his death might be closer than expected. Agnes Darla if such should be we never meet again well fire in my last shot. I will gently breed. 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. Unfortunately wild bill's vision of his death proved to be correct. He would meet his end in the town of deadwood South Dakota as with every place he went hitchcock engaged in the local poker scene on August. First eighteen seventy six. He won heavily in a game. With Jack McCall to pair. dammit wiped clean again here. Take this what. You'll need some money for breakfast in the morning. You don't want you to go hungry kid you've given me charity. I help where I can kid. Just take my advice and trust me from experience. Don't gamble again until you've got enough to cover yourself okay. Insulted and embarrassed by the loss the unwanted charity Jack went to get a drink and plot his revenge the next day August second. Eighteen seventy six while bill arrives to the saloon for for another day of poker normally while bill always selected his lucky seat which was any seat facing the door habit from his paranoid days. It was so he could see if any of his enemies these were coming in however on this day bill had arrived too late the seat that face the door was taken while bill asked twice if he could switch seats but he was has refused anything to disrupt your opponents Lucky Mojo. I guess hey you take what you can get in poker still wishing to gamble. Bill reluctantly took the next available seat and started did the play and because he was not facing the door he did not see a drunken Jack. McCall entered the saloon pistol in hand heading right towards him dame you bill hill take this guy. He's dead dead. While Bill Hickok died instantly at the age. Thirty nine the cards he was holding at the time of his death were black eights and black aces. That hand is known to this day. The dead man's hand the fifth car that he had just received received is still up for debate. After years of men trying their darndest to kill one of the West greatest legends. It was a drunken poker player insulted by a kind gesture that finally did. Indeed jury of local miners tried McCall the very next day. McCall claimed that he had killed while bill as revenge for killing his brother during his martial days. The jury of minors acquitted McCall which prompted a local newspaper to write. Should it ever be our misfortune to kill a man we would simply ask. That are trial may take place in some of the mining camps of these hills. And it's a great long sensing he wasn't well liked deadwood McCall fled to Wyoming and bragged to anyone anyone who would listen then he was the killer of Wild Bill Hickok. He was soon realized that instead would was an Indian territory that McCall's trial and deadwood had no legal basis. He was arrested again in Wyoming and charged with murder. McCall was quickly found guilty and was hanged for his crime. The lesson here. Kids is never brag it seems very fitting that the ultimate lawman even death still saw justice served while Bill Hickox legend only grew in the years after his death and he has become one of the enduring during images of the American frontier from the day he was born he was destined to seek adventure right wrongs and well be wild. He earned his place amongst amongst the heroes he so desired to be few men represented the spirit of the West quite like wild bill. Hickok.

On facebook and Instagram at par cast in twitter at podcast asked headwork now back to the life of Wild Bill Hickok eighteen thirty seven. The American experiment was still in its youth and exploration of the Western frontier had begun in the small town of homer Illinois. James Butler Hickok is born. The young James would grow up to be one of the West most deadly shooters. Much of that skill was learned in his youth through trial by fire. James's James's father. William Hickok was a noted abolitionist and actually used the Hickok home as a station for the underground railroad. The hickox were always at risk of getting caught harboring runaway slaves. James Childhood was filled with previews of the constant dangers. The new frontier would present him. shoop what is it pops officers offices. This is wanting to investigate our cargo. Most Likely James. Grab that gun beside you. But I don't matter what you know. Don't know son now take the gun on and listen for me to tell you what to do you their car. We want to have a look see inside James Far that gun now at them wherever you like just scare the horses so we have an excuse when we make our escape gotta get back here. Nice job son. No that you probably saved some good lives today. These constant brushes with danger inspired the young James to find a means of protecting himself so he picked up his dad's gun and took target practice. He'd shoot cans posts and the wild critters that roamed his farm arm. Andy quickly discovered that he was a very good shot so good in fact he became the families de facto hunter. Even as young as ten he would begin to bring in major game from around the woods who would also show off his skills and shooting competitions his marksmanship became legendary amongst the local townsfolk. It was around this age that he began to hear the stories stories of the Kings of the wild frontier. That came before him. And the stories of Daniel Boone Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie were the subjects of dime store novels. That were popular among James in his friends. James saw a lot of similarities between these legends and his own life. Protecting the innocent helping those in need and presenting themselves as the coolest list people on the planet and the superheroes of the eighteen hundreds and James Dreamed of joining their ranks as legends at the American frontier and he began to plan his Western turn adventures much to the Chagrin of his parents who wished for their son to stay in the safety of their farm instead of into the immoral and dangerous world of the new West and and considering the danger that surrounded their life at home that's really saying something on the protests of James's parents fell on deaf ears James Model himself on these American Heroes Gross. Hey this is my river now you guys get the hell out your river. It's Mr Carson River that don't matter to me I say it's my river and nothing the thing you scrawny limbs can do to stop it. Hey who you calling scrawny wimps. I'll use US scrawny whims. And if you don't get out I'm GonNa the Dan River so much you can have it. Come on guys. Let's go tell Mr car. We found a farmer in his river. the innocence of childhood. But childhood would soon disappear for Young James when he was fourteen. His father was murdered for his abolitionist. Beliefs which left much of the responsibilities of the Family Farm James James did what he could for the family but he grew bored and longed for the days of adventure and danger. He had with his father finally family. At Age. Seventeen James decided to leave the farm and seek out his own life he got by initially as a stagecoach driver. Making delivery runs between Illinois and Michigan. Again it paid the bills for awhile. PITCOCK was a rising star in the stagecoach business and one of the boys who worked with a man named Charles Hudson thought James was encroaching on the promotion. Charles thought that he deserved. Haycock wasn't a fan of Charles either. He Felt Charles mistreated the mules and was much too aggressive on his way up. Finally during a stagecoach run together the two of them came to blows in the ensuing fistfight. The tumbled into the local canal in the darkness canal. Both James and Charles failed to find their opponent and each believed they had killed the other in the panic of thinking he'd be wanted for murder. James made a split decision decision to flee Illinois and had to his destiny the wild west wait did the two of them just leave the mules up there by themselves. I guess that's a good question question. Actually in all the time the story has been told. I don't think anyone has mentioned what happened to the mules help. Those meals turned out. Okay as good as a stage coach meal could. I'm sure sure well. In any case James decided to take up a new identity as he headed west after all he believed that everyone would be looking for a James Hickok make sense new life life new identity. Plus chances at murder charges he arrived in the Kansas territory and began to introduce himself under his father's name. William Hickok bill for short. He changed his name to unnecessarily cover his tracks but kept the last name to be. Fair is an awesome last name fair point once in Kansas. The newly minted bill was a busy man. He joined up with an anti slavery group known as the Kansas Free staters. It was here that bill acquired his first nickname from those who who disliked his large ego. He was called duck bill due to the large lips. He possessed a far cry from wild bill. He also had a nickname from those in his group that found him fierce and fearless Shanghai Bill much better nickname. But it's still no wild bill in the Kansas free staters. Bill Befriended Buffalo. Flo Bill Cody. Who was only twelve at the time? And the group's leader General Jim Lane it is said that General Lane was preparing for a war with pro slavery group. The Missouri rebe Border Ruffians. And Lane was so impressed by bill that not only did he hope to have bill as a high ranking member of his army but lane also made bill his personal bodyguard being chosen. There's a personal bodyguard is quite the badge of honor indeed but being a high ranking member of an unofficial army doesn't equal large income. Bill's main source of income came from. I'm the Pony Express in between his time fighting for freedom. Bill traveled all around Missouri Kansas and Nebraska Delivering Mail and freight all around the known west. I all in all it was a pretty good Gig bill until the fateful day he found a bear blocking his path Jal Dan bear shoot..

"In arlington. One of the things I wanted to mention as I talked about this great while Bill hickok book and joking with the author Tom Claven about it. As we're trying to describe what sort of a man while Bill hickok was. He was a rare fish. Dresser was very very weird as parents always tried to address well bathed daily, and you can imagine in the old west that was not an easy thing to do. And not only was not easy. It was not something many did beating weekly was exceptional. But he used to bathe daily. Well over six feet tall. Which was very big for those days. He ever check was maybe five four or five five for most men. But as joking with Tom glavin, there is a passage in the book where the wife of George Armstrong Custer himself, quite a character. Of course describes. While Bill hickok in her memoir that was published in eighteen ninety. And if you consider the times, it's difficult to imagine a more lusty passage here. Asked Thomas at Tom with did they ever get to know each other in the biblical sense, as the expression goes, he said, well, you know, she always danced around that you never know. But listen to this passage how she describes wild Bill hickok, and this will give you a good example wide such a fun book to read. Tall live in free in every motion. He wrote and walked as if every muscle was perfection, and the careless swing of his body as he moved seemed perfectly in keeping with the man the country the time in which he lived I do not recall anything finer in the way of physical perfection than wild Bill when he swung himself lightly from his saddle and with graceful swaying step squarely Senate Scholla's in well-poised head approached our tent for orders. He was rather fantastically cloud. Of course. But all seemed perfectly in keeping with the time and place. He did not make an armory of his waist, but carry two pistols, you were top boots riding breeches and dark blue flannel. Shirt with scarlet set in the front a loose neck handkerchief left, his fine firm throat free. I do not remember all his features. But the Frank Manley expression of his fearless is and his courteous manner gave one a feeling of confidence in his word. And his undaunted courage. Yikes. The only thing missing from that is they're saying is again, I joked earlier this evening is why I do believe that I have a case of the VP's. Quite exceptional book, quite an exceptional, man. If I can find one last passage that had a lot to do with how skilled he was with his handguns. It was said that he can throw a tomato can the air and. Well, here we go. He enjoyed putting on shooting exhibitions, especially impressive was his Ambi district. Ambidextrous? Accuracy witnesses reported kill all of this. This is the eyewitness accounts. Witnesses reported seeing hickok driving a cork through the neck of a whiskey bottle at twenty paces. The bullet. Wow. Splitting a bullet on the edge of a dime at the same distance twenty paces and putting his many as a dozen bullet holes in a tomato can that he'd been tossed in the air? Yeah. This guy was a gunfighter. Letting the public know he was always at the top of his game could dissuade ambitious gunmen from trying to take hickok on such men that may have entertained thoughts of gunfighter glory, but they weren't suicidal. This was a man who was on the cusp of becoming the eighteen sixties equivalent of a matinee idol in a country. Civil war glory was receding into history. And we're now was looking west for new legends. And he filled that Bill boy did he feel that Bill glavin just dealt with what he could absolutely find as a fact and there there's plenty in there.
