  • Question*** Hickok and McCanles Dispute - Wild West

    Does anyone know what the source of the Hickok-McCanles rivalry was? From the 1867 Harper's article about Wild Bill: Any clues??


    McCanles was the biggest scoundrel and bully of them all, and was allers a-braggin of what he could do. One day I beat him shootin at a mark, and then threw him at the back-bolt. And I didnít drop him as soft as you would a baby, you may be sure. Well, he got savage mad about it, and swore he would have his revenge on me some time."


    What is a "back-bolt"??
