From around 1871, Abilene, Kansas Marshal James Butler Hickok sits for a portrait at Forney's Studio Photographer.
Abilene is where Hickok befriended James Wesley Hardin, notorious gunfighter and killer of 27 to 50 men.
The friendship soured in August 1871, when Wild Bill Hickok sought to arrest Hardin for killing Charles Couger in an Abilene hotel for snoring too loud. Hardin left Kansas before Hickok could find and arrest him.
