When we first began work on Western Legends, the game had a smaller roster of historical figures. As we wanted to bring the game to Kickstarter, and stretch goals are a thing, this meant we would need more characters. Hervé had done a great job of including the people expected to see: Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday, and Jesse James. But the more research our team did, the more interesting people we discovered that deserved to be in the game. This was a time of expansion. People from the world over came to the US in search of opportunity and fortune. In 1865, the Civil War ended and with it slavery. These momentous events shaped some into the stuff of legend.
