The Buffalo Hunter
Buffalo Bill was known as the champion buffalo killer of the Great Plains, so who better to take an important visitor on a hunt? When the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia came to visit in 1872, it was arranged that Buffalo Bill would lead the wagon train. Buffalo Bill knew many Indians and he was able to convince a famous Sioux Indian named Spotted Tail and his village to join the hunt.
