What a treat!
While most of us enjoy a well-deserved day off on Christmas, the Scouts of the Plains were working twice as hard as normal, with a regular performance as well as a 2 o'clock matinee at Baltimore's Maryland Institute.
If you had been an especially good little boy or girl that year, you could wake up early, open your presents, and then head to the theater to see Buffalo Bill, Texas Jack, Wild Bill, and Giuseppina Morlacchi live and on stage. It was Jack and Giuseppina's first Christmas together as a married couple.
Easy to imagine the happy faces of children packing the galleries of the show that afternoon and evening!
