From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (outlaws)

Henry McCarty (Billy the Kid), Doc Holiday, Jesse James and Charlie Bowdre in Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1879

These four famous outlaws were a part of “The Regulators” a group of self appointed lawmen who took justice into their own hands in order to carry out the law in New Mexico the way they saw fit. While we think of Billy the Kid and Doc Holiday as constantly evading the law, they were (for a time at least) celebrated young men who lived outside of the law to some extent, although that didn’t last long. After Billy the Kid shot and killed an actual sheriff in 1878 he became a wanted man. Still, for a brief period of time he was an inspirational antihero to the people of New Mexico.
