Aces and eights - everyone knows the tale of the Dead Man's Hand. Wild Bill Hickok was a giant in a vast land - a celebrity in the days of dime novels and the telegraph. Few men in the Old West could fill his boots, but fewer still knew the real story of the making of the legend. History remembers him as Wild Bill, but he was born James Butler Hickok. He was a young man who forged his future as a scout on the plains, and as a Union Spy during the Civil War. But it was on one afternoon in Springfield, Missouri, that Hickok found his true calling - with a gun in his hand.
