Happy Birthday Buffalo Bill!

Buffalo Bill Cody ca1875.jpg

Wild West showman Buffalo Bill Cody was born today in 1846.

He was a scout for the US Army, Pony Express rider, and served with the 7th Kansas Calvary during the Civil War, all before the age of 18.

Buffalo Bill went on to jobs as a ranch hand, wagon train driver, buffalo hunter, fur trapper, gold prospector, and, of course, performer in the touring “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West” show.

The Buffalo Bill Center of the West museum in Cody, Wyoming has a couple of great pairs of socks for your little cowpokes.
