Did you know…
… that today, besides being Mother’s Day in many countries (Happy Mother’s Day!), is Wild West Show Day? On this day in 1887, Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show opened in London, giving Queen Victoria and her subjects their first look at real cowboys and Indians. Cody remained on the road with the show for 30 years and performed in other similar shows before his death in 1917. More than 18,000 attended the great showman’s funeral, and thousands of visitors a year still flock to his gravesite on Lookout Mountain above Denver.
