Reb Russell

Reb Russell seated on his horse Rebel. Born Lafayette H. Russell in Coffeyville, Kansas in 1905, Reb got his nickname while playing football at the University of Nebraska and Northwestern University. Russell excelled at the sport, gaining All American status in 1930 and playing briefly with the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he chose instead to pursue a movie career after he got a bit part in Universal Pictures' The All-American (1932). Because he was an excellent rider, Russell became an actor in western movies. He appeared in a number of low-budget independent westerns, including The Man from Hell (1934), Fighting Through (1934), Outlaw Rule (1935), and Lightning Triggers (1935).

Joseph McCoy

At the end of the Civil War when millions of longhorns were left on the plains of Texas without a market, the Union Pacific was building west across Kansas. Joseph McCoy, an Illinois stockman, believed these cattle could be herded north for shipment by rail. He built yards at Abilene and sent agents to notify the Texas cattlemen. In 1867 the first drives were made up the Chisholm Trail and during the next five years more than a million head were received.
