Wild Bill Hickok vs Dave Tutt
Andy Thomas graphically depicts the Public Square as it was at the time, based upon contemporary sketches, photographs and descriptions. Since the fight took place at about 6 pm on a hot July day, Hickok was probably dressed as shown- in shirtsleeves. He carries his Colt’s Navy pistols worn butts forward in the manner of time, which allowed him to use the reverse plains draw, or a cross draw. One can almost hear the creak of wagons’ iron rims, muffled hoof beats and the muted sound of people going about their business before the thunder of pistols halted all sound and movement for one brief moment before a crowd gathered.
Story by Joe Rosa will accompany the print.
