According to Wikipedia, “National Bison Day is an annual commemoration of the ecological, cultural, historical and economic contribution of the American bison.” The bison is also known as the American Buffalo and is an iconic symbol of the American frontier.
Let’s hear it for the buffalo!
Without the buffalo, what would your Indian Head nickel be worth? Without the buffalo, what would we call Buffalo, NY? Even worse, without the buffalo, how would you order buffalo wings? There would be no buffalo wings! What, no buffalo wings? That would be a bad, bad thing. Thank you, bison, for giving us buffalo wings!
