This is the No 10 Saloon in Deadwood, SD. with sawdust on the floor. On the afternoon of Aug 2nd, 1876 Wild Bill Hickock wandered into Saloon No. 10 for a game of poker. The only chair left at the game was one which would place Wild Bill's back to the door, something he was uneasy with doing. Jack McCall entered the Saloon shortly after, he and Wild Bill exchanged greetings McCall walked around the table stopping to check each players hand. Finally positioning himself behind Wild Bill he pulled out his pistol and shot Wild Bill in the back of the head exclaiming "Take that damn you". Wild Bill fell forward and let his hand fall to the table, black aces and eights and the nine of diamonds which would come to be known as the Deadman's Hand.

A wonderfully detailed image with the accompanying interesting tale of Wild Bill Hickock and his unfortunate demise. I like the lighting, the mentioned clarity of detailing and the color all of which work hand in hand to produce a pleasing paintlike quality in your composition.
