1873 Playbill

A playbill from the Scouts of the Prairie on January 18, 1873, at the Pittsburgh Opera House, starring Buffalo Bill, Texas Jack, Ned Buntline, and Morlacchi. Pittsburgh was the 8th city the tour visited, and the show on Saturday the 18th was the third and final one in the city for that tour. W. F. Fleming, who is listed as "especially engaged for [the] part" of Wolf Slayer, replaced W. P. Halpin, who was injured on stage in Cincinnati during a performance and died from his injuries.
