A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Cowboy Collection - COWBOY means far more than a man riding a horse driving a herd of cattle. "Cowboy" embodies the Old West, from Texas to Montana and all points west, and everything that this entails. A life-style, an era, romance, danger, boots, saddles, sixguns, wagons, wild saloons, and yet a gentler and nostalgic way of living. Most of what we think about cowboys has past into history now, a vanishing breed, but above all, the independence and freedom of the cowboy remain as the essential qualities we cherish yet today. Much of what is essentially "Cowboy" has been captured by artists Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, and others, in bronze or canvas. The Cody Museum, in Cody, Wyoming holds the greatest concentration of Cowboy art and memorabilia in the world. William F. (Buffalo Bill) Cody was born in North Platte, Nebraska, and much of the credit for popularizing the Cowboy goes to his Wild West Show. A great yearning for the cowboy life extended to Teddy Roosevelt who enthusiastically enjoyed his years living among the cowboys in the Dakota Badlands. To some, Cowboy is Sam Houston, soldier, scholar, rebel, Governor of Tennessee, personal friend of Andrew Jackson, Texas hero, US Senator, President of Texas, displaying the absolutely essential independent Cowboy “Can Do” attitude. To some, Cowboy is the independent and free spirited attitude that made possible Missouri's admission to the Union. "Independence and the Opening of the West" by Thomas Haart Benton hangs in the Harry Truman Library in Independence, MO. To some, the Pony Express is the epitome of everything Cowboy - horsemanship, derringdo, challenge, urgency, stamina, and the "Can Do" spirit. To others, the Overland Mail conjures up the spirit of the Cowboy of the old Southwest. To some, the Range Boss symbolizes the true Cowboy, out with the herd day and night, for weeks, til the herd finds its final destination. The Trail Boss" from a drawing by Charles M. Russell depicts the Cowboy's role in this endeavor, and is the emblem of the American Society of Range Management, which stresses range conservation. To many inhabitants of Arizona and New Mexico, the Gadsden Purchase, concluded by James Gadsden in 1853 to settle a border dispute with Mexico, pulls together the entire Southwest landscape including the desert, cacti, pioneers, and of course the ever present Cowboy. To some, the Rough Riders were simply the very finest example of the Cowboy spirit as illustrated by the statue of Capt. William O. (Bucky) O'Neil of the Rough Riders of the Spanish American War. A measure of the enduring character of the Cowboy is the recent 1989 stamp of Montana statehood, showing the Cowboy on his faithful horse. It is the product of the magic and charisma of the Cowboy, even today. Ride on!
