Army during the Utah War. Hickok used his late father's name, William Hickok, from , and the name William Haycock during the American Civil War.
Most newspapers referred to him as William Haycock until He was arrested while using the name Haycock in He afterward resumed using his given name, James Hickok.
Military records after list him as Hickok, but note that he was also known as Haycock. While in Nebraska, Hickok was derisively referred to by one man as "Duck Bill" for his long nose and protruding lips.
In , Hickok claimed a acre ha tract in Johnson County , Kansas, near present-day Lenexa. In , he joined the Russell, Majors and Waddell freight company , the parent company of the Pony Express.
In , Hickok was badly injured, possibly by a bear, while driving a freight team from Independence, Missouri , to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Dismounting, he approached the bear and fired a shot into its head, but the bullet ricocheted off its skull, infuriating it.
The bear attacked, crushing Hickok with its body. Hickok managed to fire another shot, wounding the bear's paw. The bear then grabbed his arm in its mouth, but Hickok was able to grab his knife and slash its throat, killing it.
Hickok was severely injured, with a crushed chest, shoulder, and arm. He was bedridden for four months before being sent to Rock Creek Station in the Nebraska Territory to work as a stable hand while he recovered.
There, the freight company had built a stagecoach stop along the Oregon Trail near Fairbury, Nebraska , on land purchased from David McCanles.
On July 12, , David McCanles went to the Rock Creek Station office to demand an overdue property payment from Horace Wellman, the station manager.
McCanles reportedly threatened Wellman, and either Wellman or Hickok, who was hiding behind a curtain, killed McCanles. Brink, were tried for killing McCanles, but were found to have acted in self-defense.
McCanles may have been the first man Hickok killed. After the Civil War broke out in April , Hickok became a teamster for the Union Army in Sedalia, Missouri.
By the end of , he was a wagon master , but in September , he was discharged for unknown reasons. He then joined General James Henry Lane 's Kansas Brigade, and while serving with the brigade, saw his friend Buffalo Bill Cody, who was serving as a scout.
In late , Hickok worked for the provost marshal of southwest Missouri as a member of the Springfield detective police.
His work included identifying and counting the number of troops in uniform who were drinking while on duty, verifying hotel liquor licenses, and tracking down individuals who owed money to the cash-strapped Union Army.
Buffalo Bill claimed that he encountered Hickok disguised as a Confederate officer in Missouri in Sanborn by early In June, Hickok mustered out and went to Springfield, where he gambled.
While in Springfield, Hickok and a local gambler named Davis Tutt had several disagreements over unpaid gambling debts and their mutual affection for the same women.
Hickok lost a gold watch to Tutt in a poker game. The watch had great sentimental value to Hickok, so he asked Tutt not to wear it in public. They initially agreed not to fight over the watch, but when Hickok saw Tutt wearing it, he warned him to stay away.
On July 21, , the two men faced off in Springfield's town square, standing sideways before drawing and firing their weapons.
Their quick-draw duel was recorded as the first of its kind. Tutt called out, "Boys, I'm killed", before he collapsed and died. Two days later, Hickok was arrested for murder.
The charge was later reduced to manslaughter. At the end of the trial, Judge Sempronius H. Boyd told the jury they could not find Hickok acted in self-defense if he could have reasonably avoided the fight.
Several weeks later, an interview Hickok gave to Colonel George Ward Nichols , a journalist who subsequently became known as the creator of the Hickok legend,  was published in Harper's New Monthly Magazine.
Under the name "Wild Bill Hitchcock" [ sic ], the article recounted the "hundreds" of men whom Hickok had personally killed and other exaggerated exploits.
In September , Hickok came in second in the election for city marshal of Springfield. Leaving Springfield, he was recommended for the position of deputy federal marshal at Fort Riley , Kansas.
This was during the Indian Wars , in which Hickok sometimes served as a scout for General George A. Custer 's 7th Cavalry.
In , Hickok recruited six Native Americans and three cowboys to accompany him to Niagara Falls , where he put on an outdoor demonstration called The Daring Buffalo Chasers of the Plains.
This angered the buffalo and panicked audience members, causing the animals to break free of their wire fencing and chase audience members, some of whom were trampled.
The incident helped contribute to the overall failure of the show. Henry M. Stanley , of the Weekly Missouri Democrat , reported Hickok to be "an inveterate hater of Indian People", perhaps to enhance his reputation as a scout and American fighter, but separating fact from fiction is difficult considering his recruitment of Indians to cross the nation to appear in his own Wild West show.
In July, Hickok told a newspaper reporter that he had led several soldiers in pursuit of Indians who had killed four men near the fort on July 2.
He reported returning with five prisoners after killing Witnesses confirm that the story was true to the extent the party had set out to find whoever had killed the four men, [e] but the group returned to the fort "without nary a dead Indian, [never] even seeing a live one".
In December , newspapers reported that Hickok had come to stay in Hays City, Kansas. He became a deputy U. Hickok was assigned to bring the men to Topeka for trial, and he requested a military escort from Fort Hays.

On September 4, Hickok was wounded in the foot while rescuing several cattlemen in the Bijou Creek basin who had been surrounded by Indians.
The 10th Regiment arrived at Fort Lyon in Colorado in October and remained there for the rest of In July , Hickok returned to Hays and was elected city marshal of Hays and sheriff of Ellis County, Kansas , in a special election held on August 23, Hickok may have been acting sheriff before he was elected; a newspaper reported that he arrested offenders on August 18, and the commander of Fort Hays wrote a letter to the assistant adjutant general on August 21 in which he praised Hickok for his work in apprehending deserters.
The regular county election was held on November 2, , and Hickok, running as an independent, lost to his deputy, Peter Lanihan, running as a Democrat; even so, Hickok and Lanihan remained sheriff and deputy, respectively.
Hickok accused a J. Macintosh of irregularities and misconduct during the election. On December 9, Hickok and Lanihan both served legal papers on Macintosh, and local newspapers acknowledged that Hickok had guardianship of Hays City.
In September , his first month as sheriff, Hickok killed two men. The first was Bill Mulvey, who was rampaging through town, drunk, shooting out mirrors and whisky bottles behind bars.
Citizens warned Mulvey to behave, because Hickok was sheriff. Mulvey angrily declared that he had come to town to kill Hickok.
When he saw Hickok, he leveled his cocked rifle at him. Hickok waved his hand past Mulvey at some onlookers and yelled, "Don't shoot him in the back; he is drunk.
The second killed by Hickok was Samuel Strawhun, a cowboy, who was causing a disturbance in a saloon at am on September 27, when Hickok and Lanihan went to the scene.
Hickok said he had "tried to restore order". At the coroner's inquest into Strawhun's death, despite "very contradictory" evidence from witnesses, the jury found the shooting justifiable.
On July 17, , Hickok was attacked by two troopers from the 7th U. Cavalry , Jeremiah Lonergan and John Kyle sometimes spelled Kile ,  in a saloon.
Lonergan pinned Hickok to the ground, and Kyle put his gun to Hickok's ear. When Kyle's weapon misfired, Hickok shot Lonergan, wounding him in the knee, and shot Kyle twice, killing him.
Hickok lost his re-election bid to his deputy. On April 15, , Hickok became marshal of Abilene, Kansas.
He replaced Tom "Bear River" Smith , who had been killed while serving an arrest warrant on November 2, Outlaw John Wesley Hardin arrived in Abilene at the end of a cattle drive in early Hardin was a well-known gunfighter, and is known to have killed more than 27 men.
Hickok later said he did not know that "Wesley Clemmons" was Hardin's alias, and that he was a wanted outlaw.
He told Clemmons Hardin to stay out of trouble in Abilene and asked him to hand over his guns, and Hardin complied. In August , Hickok sought to arrest Hardin for killing Charles Couger in an Abilene hotel "for snoring too loud".
Hardin left Kansas before Hickok could arrest him. The murderer escaped. This was his sixth murder. Hickok and Phil Coe , a saloon owner and acquaintance of Hardin's, had a dispute that resulted in a shootout.
The Bull's Head Saloon in Abilene had been established by gambler Ben Thompson and Coe, his partner, businessman, and fellow gambler. Citizens of the town complained to Hickok, who requested that Thompson and Coe remove the image.
They refused, so Hickok altered it himself. Infuriated, Thompson tried to incite John Wesley Hardin to kill Hickok by exclaiming to Hardin that "He's a damn Yankee.
Picks on rebels, especially Texans, to kill. He seemed to have respect for Hickok's abilities and replied, "If Bill needs killing, why don't you kill him yourself?
Hickok's retort is one of the West's most famous sayings though possibly apocryphal : "Did the crow have a pistol?
Was he shooting back? I will be. On October 5, , Hickok was standing off a crowd during a street brawl when Coe fired two shots. Hickok ordered him to be arrested for firing a pistol within the city limits.
Coe claimed that he was shooting at a stray dog, [g] and then suddenly turned his gun on Hickok, who fired first and killed Coe. In another account of the Coe shootout: Theophilus Little, the mayor of Abilene and owner of the town's lumber yard, recorded his time in Abilene by writing in a notebook, which was ultimately given to the Abilene Historical Society.
Writing in , he detailed his admiration for Hickok and included a paragraph on the shooting that differs considerably from the reported account:.
As vile a character as I ever met for some cause Wild Bill incurred Coe's hatred and he vowed to secure the death of the marshal.
Not having the courage to do it himself, he one day filled about cowboys with whiskey intending to get them into trouble with Wild Bill, hoping that they would get to shooting and in the melee shoot the marshal.
But Coe "reckoned without his host". Wild Bill had learned of the scheme and cornered Coe, had his two pistols drawn on Coe.
Just as he pulled the trigger, one of the policemen rushed around the corner between Coe and the pistols and both balls entered his body, killing him instantly.
He was one of several siblings, including a younger brother named Walter Jr.. According to Walter Jr. Hickock was a popular student and an athlete at Olathe High School.
After finishing high school, Hickock had wanted to attend college, but his family lacked the means to finance his post-secondary education.
Hickock went to work as a mechanic instead. Head injuries from a serious automobile accident in left Hickock disfigured, rendering his face slightly lopsided and his eyes asymmetrical.
After being released from the hospital, Hickock was left with hospital bills and mounting debts, leading him to start bad financial habits like writing bad checks and gambling.
He drifted through several manual labor jobs, working as a railroad worker, mechanic, and ambulance driver while simultaneously continuing to write bad checks and commit petty theft.
Eventually, the crime caught up with him, and in March , at the age of 26, Hickock received his first prison sentence.
He was imprisoned in the Kansas State Penitentiary for stealing a rifle out of a local home. When Hickock was 19, he married for the first time.
However, he became involved in an extramarital affair , which eventually resulted in the conception of his first child. Hickock then decided to end his first marriage to marry his mistress, and they had two children together.
While serving his prison sentence, his second wife divorced him as well. While serving his prison sentence, Hickock met fellow inmates Perry Smith and Floyd Wells, the latter of whom used to work for the Clutter family.
Hickock was released from prison in August , after serving seventeen months. Hickock and Smith met up in Olathe, where they collected supplies to aid in the commission of the crimes.
They then went to Holcomb, where the Clutter family resided. However, when they invaded the house just after midnight on November 15, , Hickock and Smith discovered that there was no such safe.
According to Truman Capote 's account of the Clutter murders, In Cold Blood , Hickock was prevented by Smith from raping year-old Nancy Clutter during the incident.
Alvin Dewey , chief investigator in the case, testified at the trial that Hickock insisted in his confession that Smith performed all the killings.
Smith, however, first claimed Hickock killed the two women, but later claimed to have shot them himself.
Both defendants refused to testify during their trial. Hickock and Smith were arrested in Las Vegas , Nevada , on December 30, for the Clutter family murders, for which they were both tried and found guilty.
