Cowboy Did U Know?
As English-speaking traders and settlers expanded westward, English and Spanish traditions, language and culture merged to some degree.  Before the Mexican-American War in 1848, New England merchants who traveled by ship to California encountered both hacendados and vaqueros, trading manufactured goods for the hides and tallow produced from vast cattle ranches. 

American traders along what later became known as the Santa Fe Trail had similar contacts with vaquero life.  Starting with these early encounters, the lifestyle and language of the vaquero began a transformation which merged with English cultural traditions and produced what became known in American culture as the "cowboy".
