The Real where and what in the Old West
These are some of the real things and people that made up the the story of the Old West. The cows, the horses and the men who raised them… and the men who stole them! Here too, the Expeditions/Explorations and commerce which opened the West and made it viable for the oncoming modern world. I include the Wild West Shows and the old theater because the people and performers herein were almost always the genuine article, even if they were extracted from their “real” context. The battles and massacres took their toll and often set the climate of relations for years. The Wild West Shows and such were certainly not the only available entertainment, every town had saloons, “Parlors” and such. The Landmarks told folks were they were and how far they had come. Everyone had to deal with and live within the available Resources and the Law. All of it, touched on in these pages, ENJOY! – Doc B.
