Billy The Kid’s Group Photo

Written by: Peter Fishlock : 28 Nov 2019

This amazing photo is the second-confirmed photograph of Billy the Kid, and has only recently been made public. It was taken in 1877, and at the time of the photo, the famous outlaw was wanted for killing a blacksmith in Arizona. Billy the Kid, who was also known as William H. Bonney is believed to have killed another seven men during the Lincoln County War, the following year, in 1878, including Lincoln County Sheriff William Brady.

In the photo, Billy is seen dressed in a white shirt, dark waistcoat and top hat, alongside Richard Brewer, Fred Waite, and Henry Brown. The photograph has been verified by the George Eastman Museum in Texas, and is the only group image to include the notorious Irish American outlaw. Will any other photos ever come to light? Who knows. Billy the Kid of course was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett on July 14th, 1881.
