Profile of “Wild Bill” Hickok
“Wild Bill” Hickok’s story is frequently entwined with another legend of the Old West, Calamity Jane. Calamity Jane was known to have boasted of an affair with Hickok, but there seems to be no historical proof that the two were anything other than casual associates. Calamity Jane was buried next to “Wild Bill” Hickok in Deadwood, but Hickok had no say in the matter, having died 27 years earlier… Most retellings of Hickok’s poker hand have it that the aces and eights were black, not red… “Wild Bill” Hickok was played by Keith Carradine in the TV series Deadwood (2004-06).
