Wild Bill Hickok and Davis Tutt etched their names in Springfield history in July of 1865. They faced off in the town square over a gambling debt, this one involving a pocket watch.

These two young "peacocks" of the wild west were not about to back down, as reporter Sophia Vaughn explains, with the assistance of special guest John Sellars. He is the director of the Springfield History Museum, which happens to be located on the square where this story unfolded over 150 years ago.
