lagonegirl: This, also keep in mind that the “American cowboy” has been exaggerated greatly by Hollywood and popular myth - it was really only a twenty/thirty year period in the mid-19th century that essentially ended around the American civil war when barbed wire was introduced and eliminated the need for them. If you’re ever in Denver, check out the Black American West Museum. Lots of photos, artifacts, etc. John Wayne’s character in The Searchers was based on a black man named Britt Johnson. #BlackHistory
