Wild Bill finishes his service with the Union army in the Civil War and then ends up in Springfield, Missouri. A new friendship turns sour and leads to the first recorded quick-draw gunfight in the American West. Hickok’s legend as a frontiersman and a shootist grows when he travels the West as an army scout and survives several encounters with Cheyenne war parties.
