Check Out These 12 Amazing Photos From The Wild West


The “Wild West” period has a special place in the history of America. While this time period spanned from 1607-1912, the “Wild West” in particular broadly applies to the second half of the 19th century.

Whatever your view on the Wild West is, these next 12 photos you are about to see will give you a little glimpse into how America was like during this incredible time period. Number 9 is a rarely-seen look at a group of shady wild west characters!
