Hickok had warned his friend, David Tutt, there'd be trouble if he challenged Hickok. But Tutt called him out anyway, taking careful aim with his pistol. Hickok stood his ground across the plaza, with his pistol drawing a bead on Tutt. Both guns spoke as one, but Tutt lost the fight with Hickok's bullet through his heart. This is the story of Wild Bill Hickok, the man and the legend.
