Power point presentation #1 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Outlaws – Billy the Kid and contains 13 slides.

Henry McCarty, better known under the pseudonyms of Billy the Kid and William H. Bonney, was a 19th century 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, but it is now generally believed that he killed only 8.

Billy the Kid was born William Henry McCarty Jr. on November 23, 1859 in NYC. Little is known of his youth. It is believed that his father died or left the family when Billy was very young, and he was orphaned at 15 when his mother died of tuberculosis.

Shortly after, he and his brother entered a life of thievery, eventually heading west and joining a violent gang. Billy was captured and sentenced to death for the murder of a sheriff, but escaped after killing guards. He was pursued on several occasions by Sheriff Pat Garrett who eventually brought him down. The legend of Billy the Kid was created primarily by his killer, Sheriff Pat Garrett.

Power point presentation #2 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Outlaws – Butch Cassidy and contains 16 slides.

Robert Leroy Parker, better known as Butch Cassidy, was born on April 13, 1866, in Beaver, UT. He was a notorious American train robber, bank robber, and leader of the Wild Bunch gang in the American Old West.

After pursuing a career in crime for several years in the United States, the pressures of being pursued, notably by the Pinkerton Detective Agency, forced him to flee with an accomplice, Harry Alonzo Longabaugh, known as the Sundance Kid, and Longabaugh's girlfriend, Etta Place. The trio fled first to Argentina and then to Bolivia, where there are conflicting stories relayed to their demise.

The prevalent theory is that Cassidy and Longabaugh were probably killed in a shootout in November 1908 but research from diligent scholars like Larry Pointer, who wrote “In Search of Butch Cassidy,” have dug up evidence showing that in all likelihood Cassidy did fake his death in San Vicente, Bolivia, had a face lift and came back to the United States.

Power point presentation #3 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Outlaws – Jesse James and contains 17 slides.

Jesse Woodson James was an American outlaw, guerrilla, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of MO in the old American West. He was the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang. Jesse and his brother Frank James were Confederate guerrillas or Bushwhackers during the Civil War. They were accused of participating in atrocities committed against Union soldiers, including the Centralia Massacre.

After the war, as members of various gangs of outlaws, they robbed banks, stagecoaches, and trains. Jesse and Frank James continue to be larger than life legends especially in the state of MO. Many have chosen to believe the “Robin Hood” aspect of the James’s lifestyle. They are still celebrated in the many tourist areas of MO, most all claiming to be the location of the hideouts in the many caves and caverns of the state. The legend does not match the reality of their being robbers and killers.

The slide presentation covers the following:

Power point presentation #4 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Outlaws – Wild Bill Hickok and contains 15 slides.

Wild Bill Hickok is remembered for his services in KS as sheriff of Hays City and marshal of Abilene, where his ironhanded rule helped to tame 2 of the most lawless towns on the frontier. Considered one of the American west's premier gunfighters, James Butler ("Wild Bill") Hickok was born May 27, 1837, in Troy Grove, IL. The son of William Alonzo and Polly Butler Hickok, he was by all accounts a master marksman from an early age.

While in Deadwood, SD, Wild Bill became a regular poker player at Nuttal & Mann's Saloon. On the afternoon of August 2, 1876, he was playing cards with his back to the door, something he seldom did. A young drifter named Jack McCall walked in and approached Hickok from behind. Not wasting a second, he quietly drew his revolver and shot Hickok in the back of the head, instantly killing him.

Even in death Hickok's legend grew. The cards he was holding at the time -- a pair of black aces and a pair of black eights -- became known as "the dead man's hand."
