Billy the Kid

"It Was a Game of Two and I Got There First"

Series: Americans—The Spirit of a Nation

By Paul B. Thompson

"Who is it? Who is it?" Billy the Kid shouted in the dark room. Sheriff Pat Garrett, looming in the shadows, did not respond, but fired his gun at the voice. A bright flash lit up the room. After the commotion, a light went on to reveal Billy the Kid dead on the floor. William H. Bonney died at age twenty-one, but his short, wild life was filled with gun battles, violence, and crime. Although his boyish face and mild manner fooled people, the Kid was ruthless. He moved to the West as a young boy, and there his life and death would become an American legend.
