Bill Tilghman was one of the most famous Lawmen of the Old West, but he didn't start out that way, as in his early days he was arrested for theft, but he was appointed city Marshal of Dodge, in 1884 and wore a badge made of two $20 gold pieces. Tilghman was involved in the capture of Jennie "Little Britches" Stevens, and Cattle Annie McDougal near Pawnee Oklahoma in 1894.

John Ringo achieved a reputation as a notorious and dangerous man in Texas based on his link to the Hoodoo War which peaked in violence during 1875. Around 1879, Johnny Ringo drifted West to Arizona, where the notorious cowboy became the chief antagonist of Wyatt Earp, and received more notoriety before his death in July 1882. For more than a century, controversy has swirled about the details of Ringo's demise, making his death one of the most hotly debated deaths in Old West history.

This is a prostitution license from Tombstone, AZ; seven dollars and fifty cents for a whole year. This one is for a woman who called herself Sadie Jo (prostitutes rarely used their real names). And if you look at the bottom left, it's actually signed by Wyatt Earp! Eventually, Wyatt Earp ended up marrying Miss Sadie Jo.....

Doc Holliday (1851-1887). American gambler, gunfighter, and dentist of the American Old West who is usually remembered for his friendship with Wyatt Earp and his involvement in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Doc Holliday -- "I found him a loyal friend and good company. He was a dentist whom necessity had made a gambler; a gentleman whom disease had made a vagabond; a philosopher whom life had made a caustic wit; a long, lean blonde fellow nearly dead with consumption and at the same time the most skillful gambler and nerviest, speediest, deadliest man with a six-gun I ever knew." – Wyatt Earp speaking of Doc Holliday
