On This Day
Jack McCall killed Wild Bill Hickok in Deadwood's No. 10 Saloon today in 1876. McCall's motive is debated; the prevailing theory is Hickok had enraged McCall by offering him money for breakfast the morning after McCall had lost a game of poker. A hastily-formed jury acquitted McCall, but authorities dismissed the decision since Deadwood was in Indian Country. McCall hung seven months later in Yankton.
