Garrett shot down Billy the Kid -- aka William Bonney -- on July 14, 1881. Garrett tracked him after the outlaw escaped from the Lincoln County, N.M. jail in a famous gun battle that left two deputies dead.

The Kid's status as an Old West folk hero grew as countless books, films and songs were written about the gunslinger and his exploits. According to legend, he killed 21 people, one for each year of his life, but the New Mexico Tourism Department puts the total closer to nine.
