About Billy the Kid


 

 

Attention…ever since the original "authentic" tintype of Billy the Kid sold for 2.3 million dollars two years ago, there has been an epidemic of alleged and fake photographs of Billy the Kid all over the Internet & in the Media. This plague is just a vain attempt for people to make money. These purported photos HAVE NOT been professionally researched and evaluated by real photo analysts, historians, and Billy the Kid experts, but yet they are being presented to the public as authenticated based entirely on opinion by unaccredited parties.  Do not be fooled by these bogus claims. The only known photograph in existence of Billy the Kid is the one above.

No other historical figure from the Old West has stirred up more controversy and eluded historians and biographers than Billy the Kid alias William H. Bonney. This young man in his short life has established his place in history and legend, but there is more to the myth there's the man, which in my opinion is far more interesting. On this website you'll find plenty of information and learn who Billy the Kid really was and how he became a legend in his own time.
