     Franklin Pierce (November 23, 1804 – October 8, 1869) 

Pierce was the 14th President of the United States (1853–1857). He 
was a Democrat and a "doughface", a Northerner who had Southern
sympathies. Pierce was known to have made many divisive decisions
which were widely criticized and earned him a reputation as one of the
worst presidents in U.S. history.

        Portrait of William H. Bonney

William H. Bonney, better known as “Billy the Kid”, was born William
Henry McCarty, Jr. on November 23, 1859 and died July 14, 1881.
 He
was shot by Sheriff Pat Garrett near Fort Sumner, New Mexico. It is
still rumored that Billy the Kid was not killed that night in 1881, and
in fact that Garrett, who
was a known friend of the Kid’s, may have
staged it all so the Kid could escape the law.
