William F. Cody's real life experiences informed his incredibly popular "Buffalo Bill's Wild West" show. Before he was an entrepreneurial showman, Cody served as a Union soldier in the Civil War, Pony Express rider, scout, Indian fighter, and professional hunter. Cody allegedly earned his moniker "Buffalo Bill" by the ease with which he slayed thousands of the beasts of the Plains.
Two bold autographs, from the man who mythologized the Wild West!
