About Me

The quote in my signature below pretty much sums up how I feel about the old west.  The "real" old west was far different from the romanticised west portrayed in most of the movies and television shows we grew up watching.  However, it was the larger than life cowboys and big screen action version of the old west that America, and most of the rest of the world, fell in love with.  So much so that the legend has indeed become fact in the minds of most people.  It started when the "dime novels" made heros out of ordinary men, and legends out of men who may have only had one or two extraordinary events actually credited to them.  There were the exceptions, of course.  Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, and Bill Hickock, to name a few.  But, for the most part, the real old west was probably not quite as wild as the old west that was seen on movie screens and played out in backyards across America.  The old west of our childhood imaginations - that is the old west that we strive to bring to life through our reenactments and presentations.

"This is the west, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

Maxwell Scott (Carleton Young) to Ransom Stoddard (James Stewart) in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

About Me

After 20 + years portraying charactors of the Renaissance eras, I came to an era of history a little closer to my heart...the American West. (my family roots are DEEP in Texas)

As my charactor, I chose to become my great grandfather Wm. H. Harrell (or Cap'n Billy, as my aunts and uncle called him) Capt. in the calary of the Confederacy, farmer, gunman, and finally storekeeper.

Along with the Rocky Mountain Rose, I enjoy sharing "memories" with folks confined to semi-care homes, and enticing children to "read more about it", letting them know about the rich Western heritage in their own backyards.
