The greatest entertainer of his era, Buffalo Bill was the founder and star of the legendary show that featured cowboys, Indians, trick riding, and sharpshooters.
But long before stardom, Buffalo Billâborn Billy Codyâhad to grow up fast. While homesteading in Kansas just before the Civil War, his family was caught up in the conflict with neighboring Missouri over whether Kansas would enter the Union as a free or slave state.

As the violence in Bleeding Kansas escalated, he joined the infamous Jayhawkers, seeking revenge on MissouriÂans, and then became a soldier, scout, and spy in the Civil Warâall by age seventeen.
