Next we toured the Wild West Museum, which showed William (Buffalo Bill) Cody's life and development into the legend we know him as today. They talked about his life as a cowboy, scout, hunter, (failed) mine owner, and showman. They had items and maps from the original Wild West shows (which toured Europe three separate times), and several videos of their actual performances. The crew was upwards of 700 men and women (not to mention horses, cattle, buffalo, and more). Buffalo Bill really is responsible for the romanticism that we Americans, and the rest of the world, have with the brief period of time known as the American West.
The last picture shows a quote credited to William Cody that perfectly echoes our sentiment about this great country, and explains why we aren't anxious to travel overseas to see the world.
We ended the evening with a killer prime rim dinner and musical performance from a live three person band complete with fiddle and mandolin. My personal favorite was "Everywhere (Man)" and "Route 66". Definitely a winner!Read more
