James Butler Hickok
Gunfighter, Peace Officer, Gambler
Born: May 27, 1837, Troy Grove, Illinois
Died: August 2, 1876, Deadwood, Dakota Territory

Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back while playing cards in a Deadwood saloon. He is buried in Mt. Moriah Cemetery overlooking the city.
The poker hand he was holding, two pairs, black aces and black eights, became known as "The Deadman's Hand."
His assassin, Jack McCall, was later tried, convicted and hanged in Yankton, Dakota Territory's capital.

This life-size bronze statue of Wild Bill was commissioned by the Four Aces and sculpted by Monique Ziolkowski and James Borglum.
It is a memorial to Deadwood's most famous citizen, and a lasting reminder of Deadwood's colorful past.
