David Wordell joins us to share his experience and research about one of the most fascinating characters of the Pony Express Era.  Bronco Charlie Mill Joined the Pony Espress at age 12 and eventually became a regular performer with Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show.  As a young man, David Wordell had the privilege to meet and spend time with Bronco Charlie.

Their brief encounter sparked a life-long interest and years of research into the Pony Express.  Mr Wordell has collected many of Bronco Charlies’ carvings and paintings and will share a few of these at the presentation.

Don’t miss this fascinating look back into the mid 1800’s and an era that launched countless tales of the Old West.
