There’s a computer glitch on the last question. If you answer “William,wild Bill”Cody” is counted wrong.

I missed the question of who was not an outlaw. I selected William Cody and the answer said I clicked on “William” and the correct answer is “William “Wild Bill” Cody”. A little computer glitch?
The Winchester rifle was advertised as The Gun that won the West. One of the first real advertising successes. Most people owned rifles in the west while not all owned pistols. There were still an amazing number of Henrys, Spencers, Springfields, and lesser known makes, the result of economics.

Fun and amusing. By the way James Bond series actor Sean Connery did star in a 1968 “B” grade European made western, “Shalako.” In the plotline Sean is the hero, named Shalako, a buckskin clad scout and guide for a stagecoach convoy of aristocrats on safari trespassing through Indian territory. Of course they are attacked by warriors. In one scene a beautiful blond actress pretends to be dead but the Indians are smarter and know better and make certain that she ….is. Alas, unlike American writers, producers, and directors, Europeans are more fatalistic and not so squeamish that the damsel in distress be rescued every time. Perhaps the cultural impact of the world war experience. Enjoy the show.

God created man. Col. Colt made them equal! LOL!

Not paying attention, the norm for me, I selected US Pony Express instead of just “Pony Express”! The other was an honest, all out “MISS” with the “Free Soil Party” question. Not bad for a grizzled old fart I guess! LOL!

The Colt .45 revolver was the Peacemaker and the gun that tamed the Wild West.

Yes, Smith & Wesson got distracted with sales to Russia, Japan, and Turkey, though Wells Fargo and the US Cavalry did acquire a few of the Schofield variations.

I only missed two and thank goodness I got Daniel Boone correct. As one of my ancestors, he would have been upset no little if I had missed that one. My dear cousin has been up to her ears in genealogy for years and has traced my line of ancestors back to Daniel and beyond. Great questions to tax both my brain cells.

Ms. Mallow, one of my distant relatives married Daniel Boone’s granddaughter. (Another died with Crockett at the Alamo.)

If you are interested in history of the West, try Gunfighters, Highwaymen, and Vigilantes by Roger D. McGrath.

I clicked “civil War” and it came up “War of 1812”. Otherwise I got just 2 wrong. For the heck of it, I started over. Again it recorded the wrong war. Goes to show that the puzzles are only as good as the ones who program them.

I said War of 1812 and was told I got it wrong, that the correct answer was Civil War. Go figure…

I believe Civil War is the best answer. After the CA gold rush of 1849, which constituted a huge migration westward, the Civil War not only freed the Blacks/Negroes/Slaves enabling them to move west into the Free States, but the land rushes the government instituted prompted thousands of “Easterners” or Midwesterners” to migrate west, acquire land and establish ownership of real property.

Sean Connery did make ONE, but was not known as a western star.

Growing up and living my whole life in Texas and Oklahoma, the west is ingrained in me. Sorry I missed one though.

You would be hard pressed to make a mini-ball fit into the cylinder of that revolver! :D Fun quiz! (um… 15/15, but have my MA in American History, so I guess I cheated…)
