Can you guess who took this picture? I don't know who was more excited about riding horses in the same town as Billy the Kid....Jacob or me.
I guess I had Billy pegged as just another bank robbing, murdering outlaw. He was actually called a Regulator and after his boss/teacher was murdered, they were deputized. They were given warrants to capture these men and bring them in for trial. Billy just didn't see the need to take them back in. Even though his tactics were more of a vigilante, his actions got attention from the President and ultimately helped dissolve some of the government corruption in New Mexico.
