From Wikipedia: On July 21, 1865, in the town square of Springfield, Missouri, Hickok killed Davis Tutt, Jr.. in a "quick draw" duel. Fiction later typified this kind of gunfight, but Hickok's is in fact the only one on record that fits the portrayal. The incident was precipitated by a dispute over a gambling debt incurred at a local saloon.
We were told by "Sassy Eyes" (top photo) that after the shooting they ran through the building that is now the restaurant.
