I loosely define the Old West as the legend and reality of 19th Century America west of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and anything and anybody associated with it, past and present. After all, the Old West is not really a time or place but a state of mind.


The west is dead, my Friend,
But writers hold the seed,
And what they saw
Will live and grow
Again to those who read.

                              Charles M. Russell

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
