Pat Garret

Today's picture shows famed Old West Lawman Pat Garret. He was the sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico. He is remembered as the lawman who killed the famous outlaw Billy the Kid. Garret himself was killed under mysterious circumstances in South New Mexico in 1908.


  1. This is promising to be quite an interesting week, seeing the real likeness of legends one knows mostly from old movies. Looking forward to it :-)

  2. So is it true that he shot billy in the back? Or is that an urban legend?

  3. I don't think I've ever seen a photo of Pat Garret. Very interesting.
