In most places, there would be a parade and two two-hour performances” (Fees) in just 1899, the show died out. This was because of Motion pictures that recaptured the action that you couldn’t see live and the west was no longer “exotic” to people.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
