Public domain

1859: William Henry McCarty Jr., who would go on to use the name William Bonney or "Billy the Kid" as a frontier outlaw, is born, most likely in New York City. Relatively unknown during his short life, he would kill his first man at the age of 18 and is generally believed to have killed between four and nine men. He was catapulted into legend in 1881 when New Mexico's governor placed a price on his head months before he was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett.
