Buffalo Bill Cody Autograph Sold at Auction

Buffalo Bill Cody was an animated figure from the American Wild West, who is best-known for his Buffalo Bill Wild West show established in 1883. Cody worked as a pony express rider as well as a Union soldier during the American Civil War earlier in his life. The Buffalo Bill show was a traveling attraction that drew thousands of people each day. Shows typically lasted a few hours and consisted of an opening parade, rodeos, historical reenactments, races and prominent performers such as Annie Oakley or Calamity Jane. The show went bankrupt in 1913, but generated an interest in the American West such as rodeos, western films and circuses that still permeate our culture today.
