Wild, Wild West



1. Born Phoebe Ann Moses, she was a sharp shooter in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.

2. African-American soldiers in the west were given this nickname by Native Americans.

3. These 49's weren't seeking pig skin, they were hungry for this precious metal.

4. William H. Bonney, was only fifteen when he killed his first man, earning him this nickname.

5. Created in July 1789, this branch of US law enforcement spent a lot of time hunting down criminals in the Wild West.

Bonus: Once an independent republic, this freedom loving state fought and won its own sovereignty from Mexico.
