I've done quite a bit of research on John Wesley Hardin over the years. My family can claim some kinship to him. He was also a practicing lawyer in my hometown, after prison and before heading out to El Paso. All the stuff we heard about him growing up ("he shot a man for snoring..") turned out to be exaggeration and myth. What was true was his superior marksmanship with a pistol, and that he never shot except in self-defense. From all accounts of the people who knew him, he was a very likeable man, and also pretty sharp-witted. His father was a Methodist minister, and he had a good education. It's funny to me that his life took such a horrible turn after the wrestling match killing. He was basically on the run from that point until he went to prison. It makes one wonder about where his life would have gone had he not had to kill the first man. I think with his family connections, his education, and his intelligence, we could have been speaking of Hardin as a former governor of Texas, if not something greater. One incident beyond his control dictated the entire course of his life from there on. A cautionary tale for all of us.
Great write-up! Enjoyed reading this quite a bit.
