Just what did they look like?

With the stories of the West, I always wonder what this or that character looked like. Sometimes there was a camera, but many times a painter or sculptor captured an image so that we can "put a face with a name." Take a look at these portraits. For those whose names you've heard before, are you surprised at how they look? There were some surprises for me!
