Wild Bill Hickok
Springfield Town Square
Springfield, Missouri 65082
Voice: 417-881-5300

On July 21, 1865 the day after a poker game. Wild Bill and Dave Tutt would meet for the last time. Some say it was over the watch that Wild Bill lost to Dave Tutt in a poker game just hours before the fight. Some say it was over the woman that both men wanted.

Only they know the truth but the events will last through the ages. The great Wild Bill warned Dave Tutt not to wear the watch and in the middle of the street they would beet as Dave Tutt walked towards Wild Bill and pulled his pistol. Wild Bill was faster and Dave Tutt fell dead.

The rest is as they say history.
