After a life of gambling, gunplay and notoriety, Wild Bill’s tragic death mirrored his life.   Hickok was holding two aces and two eights when he was shot. Those cards are now called a “dead man’s hand”.  McCall was eventually hung for the shooting although he was initially acquitted in an unauthorized trial. His motive is unknown.
