The Cowboy Way of Life
2
When? 1860-1890
  • Cowboys were most significant in American history
    during the time from the end of the American
    Civil War through the 1890s. They were used when
    other forms of transportation were scarce in the
    western and southwestern U.S.

3
Why?
  • Cattle had to be driven to shipping points over
    long distances, and the cowboy needed lots of
    strength and endurance to complete the journeys.
    Because there wasnt good law enforcement, his
    duties also included providing security for his
    ranch and its stock.
