So much fun watching this group do re-enactments. They do them all throughout the day at different locations. Wild Bill's dead mans hand was the best, but I suggest you watch as many you can, while you are there.

The trial of Jack McCall is something you wont want to miss. The actors are great. The use of people in the audience for the play makes it even better. The shows on the street are worth catching too. They do a great job.

We thoroughly enjoyed the re-enactment of the street shoot-out and at the Number 10 Saloon, where Bill Hickok met his demise. Also the court enactment of the subsequent trial was hilarious. It gave us a lots of laughs on our visit to Deadwood, South Dakota.
