American Wild West Newspapers

The American Wild West, or American frontier, is bursting with folklore and legendary characters, such as Billy The Kid, Buffalo Bill, and Jesse James. Many events and people we consider legendary today, such as the gunfight at the O.K. Corral and Jesse James were not deemed as being significant at the time, and reports are typically small and difficult to find.

The Old West, or Wild West, was a period that began with the Gold Rush and migration of Mormons to Utah, and endured until the early part of the 20th century. American pioneers were moving westward for many reasons, for example, to outrun the law, to better their living situation, search for larger plots of land, or to mine gold and other precious metals.
