ACES & EIGHTS
WHY IT'S CALLED THE DEAD MAN'S HAND

One hundred and thirty five (135) Years ago today James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok was shot dead by a vengeful Jack McCall in the Old West town of Deadwood in the Dakota Territory.  Wild Bill was playing poker at Nuttall and Mann/Saloon No. 10 when McCall murdered him by a shot to the back of the head.  Hickok was reported to have been holding Aces and Eights at the time of his demise - all from spades and clubs:
