Description

A group of men, identified only as Buffalo Bill's Wild West, poses in this undated photograph. Founded in 1883 by Iowa native William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody (1846–1917), the traveling show changed its name in 1893 to Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World. It played in Richmond a number of times, including on October 22, 1888; October 4, 1895; October 16, 1897; and April 21, 1899. For the last engagement, Cody employed forty-two Indians as well as American cowboys, English lancers, German Cuirassiers, Mexicans, Cossacks, Arabs, Cubans, Hawaiians, and Filipinos.
