Bison Fact: The 1860s brought continued decline of herds
During the 1860s, railroads built across the Great Plains during this period divided bison into two main herds - the southern and the northern. Many bison were killed to feed the railway crews and Army posts. During this time, Buffalo Bill Cody gained fame.

In 1864, the Idaho State Legislature passed the first law to protect the bison - after they were gone from the state.
