William Frederick Cody or “Buffalo Bill,” was born February 26, 1846, near LeClaire IA. He lived a very colorful life during one of the most interesting times in U. S. History. He became a Pony Express Rider at the age of 14. He served in the American Civil War as a scout for the Union.

After the war he became an Indian Fighter in the Old West and a Buffalo Hunter, bragging that he had killed more than 4,280 himself. This feat earned “Buffalo Bill Cody” his nickname, and his status as an Old West legend but later, criticism for he and others who slaughtered buffalo “needlessly” which destroyed the primary food source for many Native American Tribes.

His colorful Wild West Show, which came to be known as “Buffalo Bill’s” Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World, evolved into an international institution and made him one of the world’s first global celebrities. The show was a circus-like extravaganza that toured widely for 30 years in the United States and later in Europe. It had a cast of hundreds, featuring fancy-shooting, hard-riding cowboys and yelling Indians, along with re-creations of a buffalo hunt, the capture of the Deadwood, SD, a stagecoach, and a Pony Express ride. Besides Buffalo Bill himself, the Wild West show starred sharpshooter Annie Oakley and, for one run, Chief Sitting Bull.

Buffalo Bill continued to perform in his Wild West show until 1916, although at age 71 he often had to be helped onto his horse backstage. While Buffalo Bill’s exhibition remained extremely popular in the United States and abroad, in the end—largely through poor investments, including his purchase of an unproductive gold mine—he lost the fortune he had made in show business. He died January 10, 1917, in Denver, CO.
