Summary
The person who drove the wagons was called a bullwhacker. Bullwhackers got their name because they whacked the oxen to keep them moving. William Hooker was a bullwhacker in the Wyoming Territory beginning in May 1874. He knew Buffalo Bill and General Custer. He later became a newspaperman, editor of the "Erie Railroad Magazine." William Hooker drove a team of oxen hauling supplies for army posts and Indian reservations far from the railroad. He cracked a bullwhip and kept a rifle ready as he delivered suger, bacon, blankets, and sacks of shelled corn to Fort Fetterman, Red Cloud Agency, and other destinations along the old Cheyenne, Medicine Bow, and Sidney trails
