Nat Love (sometimes spelled Nate Love) (June 1854 – 1921) was an American cowboy and former enslaved person in the period following the American Civil War. His exploits have made him one of the most famous heroes of the Old West.

After driving a herd of cattle to the rail head in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, he entered a rodeo on the 4th of July in 1876, enticed by the $200 prize money. He won the rope, throw, tie, bridle, saddle, and bronco riding contests. It was at this rodeo that he claims friends and fans gave him the nickname “Deadwood Dick,” a reference to a literary character created by Edward Lytton Wheeler, a dime novelist of the day
