Gunfights of Billy the Kid & Battles of the Lincoln County War

This section of my page details all the known gunfights of Billy the Kid, as well as each and every battle of the Lincoln County War. Even the few battles of the war that Billy did not actually participate in are contained here (those such battles which Billy wasn't involved in have an asterisk [*] located on the link). The gunfights are organized into three sections, namely: 1)pre-Lincoln County War; 2)Lincoln County War; and 3)post-Lincoln County War. Enjoy, and if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, just e-mail me.
