How To Use This Site


This blog was updated on a daily basis for about two years, with those daily entries ceasing on December 31, 2013. The blog is still active, however, and we hope that people stopping in, who find something lacking, will add to the daily entries.

The blog still receives new posts as well, but now it receives them on items of Wyoming history. That has always been a feature of the blog, but Wyoming's history is rich and there are many items that are not fully covered here, if covered at all. Over time, we hope to remedy that.

You can obtain an entire month's listings by hitting on the appropriate month below, or an individual day by hitting on that calendar date.

We hope you enjoy this site.

Interesting to place in prospective in regards to scale. The Civil War years were bloody ones on the Frontier, but the blood spilled in the war in the East was truly massive.  While battles occurred in the West, and in Wyoming, throughout the Civil War, they were often on the level of skirmishes compared to the ones being fought in the East.  This is not to reduce the scale of the conflict in the West, or the nature of it, but rather, it places it in context.  Indeed, those state and paroled troops serving in the West were there as the regular Federal troops were serving in the East, alongside of thousands upon thousands of other state troops.

Today In Wyoming's History: January 30

Today In Wyoming's History: January 30: 2015  The Federal government announced the sale of the Rocky Mountain

is famously known in most places of the scandal that occurred during
Warren G. Harding's administration.
