William Frederick Cody (1846-1917) was an expert marksman of the American cavalry, who became famous, still young, for slaughtering an absurd amount of buffalo in order to facilitate the construction of a railroad in the state of Iowa, where he was born, having been nicknamed Buffalo Bill. The purpose of extermination was to simultaneously clear land, feed the builders, and starve the natives.?
Years later, he created Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, a circus that achieved worldwide fame and toured the entire world, using the Amerindians as a major attraction. He also gave rise to the well-known cartoon saga, Buffalo Bill, where he appeared as the great guardian of justice.
