What is your opinion of John Wesley Hardin?
I view John Wesley Hardin as a product of his times—and those were violent times. Many young men of his era were much like Hardin, impacted by the Civil War and its aftermath in the South.
Even more, as explained by Richard Marohn, a Hardin biographer and expert on adolescent psychiatry, Hardin suffered a personality disorder made worse by alcoholism.
