    a U.S. Army scout, a buffalo hunter, Indian fi ghter and eventually an actor/performer. But fi rst he worked as a messenger in Kansas for a wagon-freight company that eventually fi nanced the Pony Express. His father died when he was 11, precipitating his early entry into the life of a hunter, horse wrangler and Indian fi ghter. He served in the Civil war from 1861 to 1865 and then worked for the U.S. Army as a civilian scout and dispatch bearer.

    Cody earned his nickname as Buffalo Bill when he hunted and slaughtered more than 4,000 buffalo between 1867 and 1868 in order to feed Union Pacifi c Railroad construction crews.

    From 1868 to 1876, he was a valuable guide and scout for the U.S. 5th Cavalry during the governments attack on the Indians in the west. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his efforts in 1872, which was soon revoked once it was determined that he was indeed a civilian; only offi cers or enlisted men in the army were eligible for the award. The U.S. Army eventually restored the Medal of Honor posthumously to Cody in 1989.

    But Codys Medal of Honor was probably not what catapulted him into Western folk hero status, but rather his entry into stardom. Author Ned Buntline recruited

    Cody for his The Scouts of the Prairie drama in 1872. Cody proved to be a true showman and in 1883 produced the Wild West Show, an exhibition that featured Cody himself with fancy shooting, buffalo hunting, cowboys, Indians and the Pony Express ride. Annie Oakley, Calamity Jane and Chief Sitting Bull were known to make appearances on the show.

    Cody made and lost more than one fortune. He was not known to be good with his money. He was still performing two months before his death in 1917. He died in Denver, Colo. and is buried on Lookout Mountain.

    MORE ABOUT BUFFALO BILL:

    Between 1909 and 1915, he made ve movies. One was his autobiography, The Life of Buffalo Bill.

    In 1887, he reportedly took his Wild West Show on the road to London to perform for Queen Victoria. Along with the cowboys and Indians who performed with him, he brought 180 horses, 18 buffalo, 10 elk, 10 mules, 5 steers, 4 donkeys and 2 deer.

    Cody paid Sitting Bull $50 per week for four months to tour with the Wild West Show in 1885. They had a written contract which is reported

    to be the only known document with Sitting Bulls signature. However, some sources note that Sitting Bull sold his autograph for $1.50 and made good money doing so.

    Cody often took thrill seekers on buffalo hunts. A couple of them were George Armstrong Custer and the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia.

    CALAMITY JANEMartha Jane Calamity Jane Cannary was born in 1852 in Princeton, Mo. She was a rather colorful person with a reputation for a lifestyle full of adventure and not exactly clean living. It all began when her family made the fi ve-month journey from Missouri to Virginia City, Mont. in 1865. Her mother died during the trip and her father died about a year later. Jane was the oldest of six children and consequently took charge, moving the family to Wyoming. As the provider, she found herself hanging out with the men, hunting and traversing the west. She was known as someone who enjoyed the taste of whiskey and could cuss like a man by the ripe old age of 13.

    There is a great amount of disparity between Janes autobiography and what has been written about her by biographers and historians. For example, she reports joining General George Custer in Arizona for the Indian Campaign. There is no historical evidence that Custer was indeed there. She does state that at this time she begins to dress like a man. That part appears true and well documented. She reports many dangerous missions as a scout locating Indians and as a Pony Express rider carrying mail. Some historians report no such adventures; instead a life of pros
