I notice the Buggs seem to favor Wild West themes for their historic re-enactments. I’m pretty sure this is because of their love of guns, spurs and riding horses — and who doesn’t love these things?


Annie Buggley sits on her horse, aiming a rifle at an apple balanced on the head of Buffalo Bugg, who is tied to a post. He does not look at all certain that she’s going to miss his head and hit the apple. It’s okay, Buffalo Bugg — your head will grow back.

The text reads: “Aprovul 24, 1885: Sharpshooter Annie Buggley is hired to be part of Buffalo Bugg’s Wild West Show.”
