Aces and Eights
The infamous hand that Wild Bill Hickok was holding (and it was the winner) when the coward, Jack McCall, wandered into Tom Nuttall's #10 Saloon, and without warning pulled a pistol and shot Wild Bill in the back of the head. Mortally wounded , Hickok died moments thereafter.
ACES AND EIGHTS POSTER
Something Special and Unique
Back in May, 2006 we were rounded up to work on a re-enactment of the moment when Jack McCall walked into Tom Nuttal's #10 Saloon on Aug 2 1876, in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, and murdered Wild Bill Hickok.
This painting by Canadian artist Ken Dewar, was the end result of the afternoon of filming in Heritage Park, an authentic 19th century town, in Calgary. 130 years to the day that McCall did his cowardly deed the painting was unveiled in front of City Hall in Deadwood, South Dakota, on August 2, 2006.
