|"Wild Bill Hickok; The Red Sash"
James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok was known as a dandy and a fancy dresser. There are numerous photographs of him dressed in a wide variety of snazzy clothes. He wore his brace of pistols in the reverse or "cavalry style," which meant butts forward, draw. These pistols were held in place by a red sash he wore around his waist. Though his pistols do not appear here, you can see his red sash and his coat under which they are concealed.
