The Old West
"The Wild West"

Was the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800's, and the early part of the 20th century. During this time, thousands of pioneers travelled west in search of land, better lives, gold and silver, and sometimes, to escape the law. Geographically, the "Old West" applies to those states west of the Mississippi River.
