According to the artist, “On April Fools Day, 1878, Billy the Kid and six other Regulators ambushed Sheriff William Brady and his deputies on the main street in Lincoln, New Mexico. Brady and Deputy George Hindman were killed. The Regulators shot from behind the adobe, corral wall of John Tunstall’s store. Billy and Big Jim French were both wounded by gunfire from the remaining deputies when they briefly emerged to check the bodies. The Regulators extricated themselves by charging out of the corral and riding away along the Bonito River.”
