Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show
Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show commenced in 1883 in Omaha, Nebraska. His touring company traveled throughout the west with a circus-like atmosphere of buffalo, horses, Indians, and even Calamity Jane. However, by the 1900s, the show had diminished in flamboyancy and accepted smaller audiences. They even brought the act to Atlanta and held the show in Piedmont Park, at the end of the railroad line.
