It was interesting that Queen Victoria attended a performance. Sometimes actors of other shows had been asked to perform at Windsor Palace.

My father-in-law saw Cody in Glasgow when his 'The Drama of Civilisation' (!) show played there for 4 months in 1891-2. There's even a statue of him on the site of the showground where his troop, including Annie Oakley, performed.
During his stay Cody donated some artefacts to the city, one of which was the Lakota Ghost Dance shirt, taken, it is said, from a dead warrior after the Battle of Wounded Knee. The shirt was displayed in Kelvingrove Museum from then until its repatriation in 1999.
