A Nice Bit of the Old west

Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill and Texas Jack. Texas was pretty famous back when and was a star in the Wild West, too. Bill Hickok was also a scout before embarking on a career as lawman and gambler.


On Texas Jack:

"He was an expert trailer and scout. I soon recognized this and... secured his appointment in the United States service...In this capacity I learned to know him and to respect his bravery and ability. He was a whole-souled, brave, generous, good-hearted man...who was one of my dearest and most intimate friends.”


--William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, 1910


Texas Jack was also a character in Ned Buntline and other Dime Novels.
