Left: Wild Bill (James Butler Hickok, 1837-1876) Wild Bill, a gunfighter, lawman, and scout, was usually mild-mannered and courteous; when aroused he was deadly, supposedly never missing a target with his ever-present pair of Colt 1851 Navy revolvers. Right: Buffalo Bill (William Frederick Cody, 1846-1917) Before Buffalo Bill began his international career as a showman in 1882, he trapped, mined, scouted, rode Pony Express, soldiered, hunted buffalo, guided and drove a stage.
