The American cowboy is an easily recognisable and very popular persona that began just after the Civil War in Texas. With the growth of the population, the demand for beef increased as did the demand for cattle herders, which is where cowboys come in to play. Cowboys, as a consequence of their jobs, were thought to be loyal, hardworking, respectful, and loyal. These are all qualities that the American public loves to see and aims to embody. As the former President George W. Bush said, “We celebrate the Cowboy as a symbol of the grand history of the American West. The Cowboy’s love of the land and love of the country are examples for all Americans.”
