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.

October 13

I wonder why turnips?  Why not potatoes, or onions? Turnips?

1889  A Grand Jury is dismissed after failing to find anyone to charge with the murders of Ella Watson and Jim Averill.

1916   Cheyenne Leader for October 13, 1916: Sox take the series

They won it, of course, the prior day.  This was a morning paper.

1917   October 13, 1917: The Sox Take the Series

And to think, the playoffs aren't even over in 2017.
