Cowboy Did You Know
The arrival of
English-speaking settlers in Texas began in 1821, while California
did not see a large influx of settlers from the United States
until after the Mexican-American War. However, in slightly
different ways, both areas contributed to the evolution of the
iconic American cowboy. Particularly with the arrival of
railroads, and an increased demand for beef in the wake of the
Civil War, older traditions combined with the need to drive cattle
from the ranches where they were raised to the nearest railheads,
often hundreds of miles away.
