Pat Garrett, the sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico, claimed responsibility for the death of the notorious outlaw, Billy the Kid. This charge would not be his first lie, nor would it be his last, but it would be, by far, the most prominent. In a departure from the overwhelming literature that takes lawman Pat Garrett’s story—that he killed The Kid in a happenstance meeting in an isolated cabin—as historical truth, W.C. Jameson presents evidence to the contrary.
