North Dakota Cowboy Hall to display Sitting Bull vest

Medora, North Dakota (AP) May 2010

Exhibits at the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame in Medora this season will include a vest owned by Sioux leader Sitting Bull and a gun owned by Wild West showman “Buffalo Bill” Cody.

Both items are on loan from other museums.

The vest will become part of an exhibit called “Civil War in the West,” which focuses on land ownership on the Western plains. Another piece includes a six shooter owned by Buffalo Bill.

Hall executive director Darrell Dorgan says the items were flown into Bismarck and then driven to Medora, with escorts provided by county sheriff’s departments along the way.
