Part 3 of 6 in a series on Buffalo Bill Cody I wrote for Legends of the Old West.
In Episode 3 of "Buffalo Bill – First Scalp for Custer" we delve into a pivotal moment in Buffalo Bill's life. Following a personal tragedy, Cody and Texas Jack split up their acting troupe and Buffalo Bill leaves his acting career and returns to scouting. His re-entry into frontier life leads to a legendary encounter with a Cheyenne warrior, a moment that cements his status as a folk hero. This skirmish, though minor, propels Bill back into public adoration and onto the theatrical stage, where he re-enacts this dramatic episode, shaping his legacy and intertwining fiction with his real-life exploits.
