“Buffalo Bill” Cody
Following the Civil War, Cody earned the nickname “Buffalo Bill” after supposedly wiping out more than 4,000 buffalo in 18 months between 1867 and 1868. In 1872, Cody took part in one of the original Wild West shows and a year later he started touring with a old west play called Scouts of the Plains. By 1893, he was running Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World
Not just an entertainer, Cody played a major part in founding the town of Cody, Wyoming. He traveled through that part of Wyoming in 1870 and ten years later he returned to found the town. He passed away in 1917 – his funeral was attended by a king, a kaiser, and a president.
