William Frederick Cody (February 26, 1846 – January 10, 1917), known as Buffalo Bill, was an American soldier, bison hunter, and showman.

Following the Civil War, Cody’s expertise as a scout for the Army earned him the moniker “Buffalo Bill” for his prowess in hunting and supplying meat to railroad workers. While his exploits garnered local recognition, it was an encounter with Ned Buntline, a dime novelist, that propelled Cody into the realm of legend.

Buntline’s embellished tales transformed Cody’s life into larger-than-life stories, catapulting him to fame. In 1883, Cody capitalized on his newfound celebrity by founding Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, a spectacle that toured across the United States and, from 1887 onward, captivated audiences in Europe.

Chief Joseph (1840-1904) was a leader of the Nez Perce, A Native American tribe of the interior Pacific Northwest region of the United States.  He led his band of Nez Perce during the forcible removal of his people by the United States federal government from their ancestral lands in the Wallowa Valley in northeastern Oregon.  Chief Joseph led his people over 1,170 miles in hopes of seeking refuge in Canada.  Unable to fight any longer and just 40 miles short of the Canadian border, Chief Joseph surrendered to the Army.  He was transported between various reservations before finally being moved to Colville Indian Reservation in the state of Washington where he died.
