The state of Missouri was created in 1821, and twelve years later the southern portion of the state was lumped together with the city of Springfield as the main population center. The city became famous for being the first city to host a shootout – this one between Wild Bill Hickok and Davis Tutt, Jr.
Hickok shot Tutt through the heart from seventy-five yards away, making him a national celebrity and outlaw. In 1870 the first railroad came to the city, starting a trend of urban and suburban development, and during the Second World War the city was a manufacturing center, making all kinds of things for the army and navy.
