twmagWestern lore records Tom Horn as a gunfighter, and he did wield a gun during Arizona’s Pleasant Valley War in 1887, but he was more accurately a hired gunman who usually shot his victims from ambush. He’s shown here, in the jail in Cheyenne, Wyoming, before his 1903 execution for the murder of 14-year-old Willie Nickell. – True West Archives –
