Hometown Hero...


Billy The Kid (a.k.a. Henry McCarty)

Born in New York City, Billy the Kid moved west and became one of the most famous outlaws in American history. He was quick with his gun and his temper and was expert at escaping from small-town jails. Hey, what else would you expect from a New Yorker???

The Kid nearly got on the right side of the law in 1879, arranging to surrender and receive a pardon in exchange for his testimony against others, but the pardon never quite arrived and he went on the lam again. In 1881 he was arrested, tried and convicted of murder. He escaped, killing two deputies in the process, but was hunted down three months later and shot to death by Sheriff Pat Garrett. No wonder he looks so jammed up!

What a bad-ass! And because of this, Billy's a Hometown Hero.

I bet he could do some serious drinking, too.
