Rex Folklore: Billy the Kid - friend of the oppressed? (20) RE: Folklore: Billy the Kid - friend of the oppressed? 17 May 07


I will humbly add that if you can, go visit the Albuquerque Museum. They have an astounding collection of artifacts, original photographs and letters directly relating to Billy the Kid. How about the 1871 Colt that Pat Garrett used to shoot Billy the Kid for starters? And the knife the Kid was carrying at the time? There's also a whole other gallery of the folklore, books, movies on the subject. Its an exhibit drawn from private collections that won't be seen again. It runs through July 22.

We just had the opening events this past weekend. I was there as Pat Garrett. Whoop!
