3 Best Historical Beards from the American Frontier
Mountain men have been the stuff of legend and hollywood movies. Their history is fascinating. During the early 1800s, the vast open west of the United States – most notably the Rocky Mountains was a hotbed for frontiersmen activity. A lot of these men just so happened to be beardsman as well. Here’s a brief look at the history of the mountain men and some of their most noteworthy and notorious men. Before the migrations of the mid 19th century rolled into the American West, the area was populated sparsely with non-natives. Those bold adventurers who called this space home were small groups of fur trappers and explorers. Today what we now call mountain men. These hardened and grizzled men helped set the trails used by many early pioneers and created stories we’re still fascinated by. It goes without saying that they all rocked some killer beards.
