Description

Despite his young age, Cherokee Bill’s boldness and audacity surpassed that of many outlaws on the Western frontier, making him a truly exceptional badman. What set Bill apart, first and foremost, was his status as an African American residing in the Indian Territory. Additionally, he was a Native American and a member of the Cherokee Nation through his mother’s lineage, making his background all the more unique. And when Bill joined forces with the Cook brothers, he displayed a fatalistic mindset, seemingly expecting to meet his demise at every turn and leaving a trail of dead men in his wake. Many of the desperados who aligned themselves with the Cook gang during the summer of 1894 came to an early grave, Cherokee Bill included. And when asked if he had any final words his reply was “I came here to die, not make a speech.”
