FC: John | Wesley | Hardin
1: John Wesley was born into a religious family, 1853 | His first murder was to his Uncle's ex-slave, named Mage, because Mage beat him to a wrestling match, to the left shows the gun he used to put 4 bullets in Mage's head.
2: His next landmarked kill, was a man who lost to Hardin in a game of poker. The man became angry and pulled a knife on Hardin and threatened to "Cut out his liver", but Hardin drew his gun and killed him, making him wanted. | He then was found, arrested by Texas Rangers, and brought to a "so-called" escape proof jail, which he promptly escaped from, making him even more wanted.
3: After being nicknamed both, "The Gentleman Killer" and then, "The Terror of Texas" he became good friends with Buffalo Bill. Buffalo Bill trusted him so much, he let him carry his gun for him. | Later in his life, he was assaulted by point blank shotgun blast, by Phil Sublett after getting into a fight, but Hardin had enough power left in him to pull his gun and kill Phil Sublett
4: Captured again, by Texas Rangers, after they had intercepted one of his letters to his father in-law. Hardin was sent to jail, where he served his time. | After release, Hardin remarried to a 15 year old girl.
5: After he was released, he was a hired gun, killing people usually for around 5 dollars. He was in trouble after he was found by a Texas Ranger, where Hardin admitted to shooting a Latino gang leader for $5. | Finally, at the age of 40, he was killed by a man in a drunk duel over a miner dispute.
6: In the end, John Wesley Hardin is remembered even today, as being one of the most infamous outlaws in Texas history, for killing over 42 people, and turning to a life of crime at 15, from a well respected religious family.
7: So, in conclusion, John Hardin has been chased most of his short lived life. Starting from an adrenaline fueled killing of his Uncles ex-slave, and ending in an alcohol fueled duel, which he died, (the picture to the left is a picture of John Hardin shortly before his burying)
