Hickok and Custer, both legends, made even more so by their violent deaths, seemed destined to be tied together to the bitter end. WIth the former, a rousing victory at Little Bighorn could have catapulted him to the White House that fall, or possibly no later than , when James Garfield, another young Civil War general, was elected.

It was pure escapism from their boring, reasonably safe lives. Because of these stories that were mostly springing from the imaginations of writers or were tall tales blown completely out of proportion from the reality of what really happened, it was a huge task for a writer like Tom Clavin to separate fiction from fact. Wild Bill Hickok not only looked the part, but lived the part of a legend. When he got word that several men were waiting for him at train stops in Hays City and Abilene who harbored grudges from his days as a lawman, he telegraphed a message to the newspapers.
I wear my hair long as usual. Instead, when he appeared, his long hair flowing out of his black sombrero, crowds who had gathered in anticipation of a showdown saluted him with cheers.

Hickok really made a name for himself as a lawman by bringing the wild cow towns of Hays City and Abilene under control, not without bloodshed, but certainly with the intent of making those cities safe for everyone. He may have done too good a job bringing things under control in Abilene, which eventually cost him his position.
Those abolitionist roots stayed with Wild Bill and brought him to Kansas during the bloody fighting between the Jayhawkers and the Border Ruffians. He was busy at the time, operating clandestinely behind the Confederate lines and bringing information back to the Union forces, quite possibly one of the most dangerous assignments in any war. From the time he left Illinois until the time he left this world for good, Wild Bill Hickok was always right in the middle of where history was being made.
You will enjoy reading about his exploits and will be impressed with the man who emerges from behind the legend. He was truly a man among men.
