Davis Kasey "Little Dave"  Tutt (1839-1865)

born in Yellville AR, son of Hansford Tutt (18011850) and Nancy Anne Rose, died in Springfield MO.

Enlisting in 1862 in Company A, 27th Arkansas Infantry Regiment, Davis Tutt fought for the Confederate States of America in the Trans-Mississippi Theater during the American Civil War. At its end, he decided to go west, stopping first in Springfield, Missouri, where he met Wild Bill Hickok. Despite serving on opposite sides during the war, they became friends and often gambled together. Tutt even loaned Hickok money on occasion.   The fall out between Tutt and Hickok was due to Hickok's failure to repay the money he owed, worsened by Tutt  taking Hickok's prized watch as collateral.  Hickok  warned him to never wear it in public which would be humiliating to him. Unfortunately, he wore it the very next day and Hickok quickly sought revenge. They met in the public square of Greene County, Missouri and Hickok was a much faster draw. Hickok immediately surrendered to the sheriff but was  found not guilty due to "reasonable doubt" and walked away a free man.
