John Wesley Hardin reigned as gunman supreme in Texas between 1868 and his final capture by Texas Rangers in 1877. He was considered the most wanted fugitive of his time. It has been said that Hardin killed more men in personal combat than any other gunfighter on the American Frontier. He was easily the most sensational shootist of the Old West. He made Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp look like mere amateurs. Today, Hardin's appeal remains magical.
