Foothills Genealogical Society Meeing and Potluck

Applewood Valley United Methodist Church, 2035 Ellis St., Golden, CO 80401

Buffalo Bill: A Life in the West by Steve Friesen

The funeral of one of the most colorful figures of the Old West-Buffalo Bill-was held in Denver 100 years ago. Controversy continues about his burial on Lookout Mountain.

Foothills Genealogical Society will meet at 1:0 0p.m.for a presentation on "Buffalo Bill: A Life in the West" by historian Steve Friesen. William F. Cody earned the nickname “Buffalo Bill” because of his skill as a buffalo hunter. Born in 1846, he also was a Civil War veteran, a Pony Express rider, and a civilian scout for the U.S. Army during the Indian Wars, winning the Medal of Honor in 1872. One of the most colorful figures of the American Old West, he founded Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show in 1883 and toured the U.S., Great Britain and Europe. Friesen, director of the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave since 1995, will present an overview of Buffalo Bill’s life and his impact on American history as well as the ongoing controversy surrounding his burial. He also will present numerous historic images of Buffalo Bill and his Wild West.

A potluck lunch at 11:30 a.m. will precede the meeting. Guests are welcome and there is ample parking and handicap access at the church. Bring a family-sized dish (with a label if it contains nuts or fish). Plates, flatware, rolls and coffee will be provided.
