Jack McCall Insulted By “Wild Bill” August 1, 1976

On the night of August 1, 1876 “Wild Bill” Hickok was playing poker at the Nuttall and Mann’s No.10 Saloon. Jack McCall also known as “Crooked Nose Jack” was drinking waiting for a spot so he can join the game. One of the players decided that they had enough and dropped out. McCall, who was already drunk, took the open seat. McCall went on a losing streak and before he knew it, had no more money to play with. Hickok gave him some money so he could get something to eat and advised him not play again until he could cover his losses. Although McCall took the money, he was insulted.
