When Buffalo Bill passed away in 1917 the world said goodbye to a great scout and showman. He was a legend, a myth, and entrepreneur who brought the west to life. This chess set reflects “King” Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley his “Queen”, Iron Tail and Sitting Bull are his “Bishops, with two of Cody’s favorite horses Charlie and Tucker that are his ”Knights”. Native American teepees from the “Rooks and the “Pawns” are portrayed by the buffalo often called by the Native American as Tatonka. Here in lies your own reenactment of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in your home!
