Quote from: Hydra009 on May 02, 2021, 07:07:09 PMIt's kind of a trick question, since historical cowboys wore a variety of hats, so there isn't one right answer. Bowlers, derbies, sombreros, caps, and what we now consider "cowboy" hats (at the time, they were called Stetson hats after its inventor). The last one really caught on and nowadays has become synonymous with cowboys, but that wasn't always the case. It'd be like considering crossbows to be the quintessential medieval european weapon.Also, a great many historical cowboys were ethnically Hispanic or native American and about 1 in 4 were black.

Quote from: SGOS on March 31, 2022, 07:31:59 AMIs south of I-44 where you grew up, like that guy in the book Hillbilly Elegy? But I think that was farther east. Kentucky maybe.
