They were good buddies Raw. In fact, Pat Garrett use to ride with Billy the Kid when there was a war in Lincoln County, New Mexico. Billy the Kid started something called "The Lincoln County Regulators."<quoted text>
Have you ever read Pat Garrett's book? I have. Not very well written but it does have a lot of insight to it.
But I dont remember ever reading anything that claimed Billy and Pat Garrett were good friends. Where did you get that info? I would like to check it out.
I was looking at this site that is an offical site, and a museum at Fort Sumner, NM that has all of the Billy the Kid's history. They have guns, and all kinds of historical documented things from Billy the Kid including a gun, a lock of his hair and all kinds of stuff.
It's about a 4-5 hour drive from my house, and I am thinking about taking a mini-vacation down to Fort Sumner pretty soon and see this museum. It'd be a short, but fun trip.
I think it is called "The Billy the Kid Museum." It's in Fort Sumner, NM.
Pat Garrett was from Alabama originally, then he went to Louisiana, and then to Texas. He was a cow hand. I think they ended up in Colorado too for a spell...Then to New Mexico.
Pat Garrett was killed close to a place called Las Cruces, New Mexico. There are tours what lead to the exact spot where Garrett was killed. Thye made a shrine of sorts.
Be sure to get the movie called "Young Guns II," and I think you'd like it alot. It's been out a while, so I bet you could get it pretty cheap.
Great action, and a good story.
So you ain't voting for Obama eh? ha
