Afternoon OT

William H. Bonney (born William Henry McCarty, Jr.) est. November 23, 1859 [1] – c. July 14, 1881, better known as Billy the Kid but also known as Henry Antrim, was a 19th-century American gunman who participated in the Lincoln County War and became a frontier outlaw in the American Old West. According to legend he killed 21 men, [2] but it's generally believed that he killed between four [2] and nine. [3] McCarty (or Bonney, the name he used at the height of his notoriety) was 5'8" tall with blue eyes, a smooth complexion, and prominent front teeth. He was said to be friendly and personable at times, [4][5] and it's been said that he was as lithe as a cat. [4] Contemporaries described him as a "neat" dresser who favored an "unadorned Mexican sombrero". [4][6] These qualities, along with his cunning and celebrated skill with firearms, contributed to his paradoxical image as both a notorious outlaw and beloved folk hero. [
