The Untold History of Billy the Kid
Tom Horn and John H. "Doc" Holliday were very well-known in the Southwest of the 1870s and 1880s. The U.S. Army Scout and circuit gambler were very different individuals, but they shared something in common: Tom Horn and Doc Holliday were friends of Billy the Kid.
Along with making many friends over his lifetime, William H Bonney had his fair share of enemies. This list of corrupt, dishonest, or foul men include cattle rustlers, outlaws, and several government officials. In the photo above, Billy the Kid would have crossed paths and known these men well enough for them to be bitter rivals and enemies: Johnny Ringo, Curly Bill Brocius, John Kinney, Bob Olinger, Jesse Evans, and Governor Lew Wallace. If given the chance, a bullet with their name on it sat in Billy's revolver.
