Buffalo Bill Cody
Born William Frederick Cody, “Buffalo Bill” was the embodiment of the romanticized western hero. A drover on west-bound wagon trains at age eleven, Cody became an accomplished horse wrangler, hunter, and “Indian fighter” by his teens. He served as a scout for the Union Army during the Civil War, and went on to assist the government in its attempts to wipe out Native American resistance. As a buffalo hunter supplying meat for workmen building a railroad, his amazing skill with a rifle earned Cody his famous nickname.
 
Meanwhile back East, his daring feats provided material for newspaper reporters and dime novelists, who transformed “Buffalo Bill” into a national folk hero. Eventually 557 dime novels were written about Cody, many by authors who had never been west of the Hudson River.
 
In 1883 he was inspired to organize his spectacular Wild West Show - an extravaganza featuring fancy shooting, hard-riding cowboys, and war-whooping “Indians.” The show’s stars included sharp-shooter Annie Oakley, Chief Sitting Bull, and Wild Bill Hickok. Extremely popular, Cody took his show across the U.S. and even across the sea to Europe, where he delighted audiences in England, Paris, Venice, and the Vatican.
