OCTOBER 30, 1855

Stone, Ron

Book of Texas Days;1984, p182
The article discusses the history of the Age of Cowboy in Texas. The real Age of the Cowboy lasted only about thirty years, from the end of the Civil War to the end of the open range. The stereotype of the pure American cowboy continued with the birth of Paul Bauer on October 30, 1855. For nearly a hundred years the Bauers made saddles for Texas Rangers, cattlemen, dignitaries, and even real working cowboys.
