More > evolution of the Western genre. Viola’s dramatic career, although ultimately a monumental failure, could not have been accomplished at all without the patronage and comprehensive backing of Colonel W.

The most compelling element in this dramatic spectacular was a band of ten Lakota Indians, whose recruitment from Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota, was facilitated by Buffalo Bill. ‘The White Lily’ has generally been ignored by Cody scholars but it now emerges as not just a side issue but rather an indispensable component in the story of Buffalo Bill’s momentous 1891–92 season.< Less
