Billy the Kid also known as Henry McCarty, William Antrim or William H. Bonney.
"Billy the Kid was no outlaw or gangster. When he saw the man who had befriended him shot down in cold blood, his horse also killed, and the victim's overcoat rolled up to form a pillow placed under the head of both the murdered man and his horse, then to see the murderers gallop away laughing and yelling, he swore he would kill every one of them. He got them all but two, When he was killed at twenty-one, he had 21 notches on his gun."
