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.

September 24

1906   The First US National Monument, Devils Tower, was designated by President Theodore Roosevelt.

1911  Governor Richards daughter and son in law murdered at Richards' Red Banks ranch on the Nowood.

1916   Cheyenne Sunday State Leader for September 24, 1916: Guard awaits order to move to border

This story was repeating itself by this time, but the State's National Guard was expecting orders to move out.

Meanwhile, Army camps were proving to encourage theft, a common story, as it was found that National Guard items were making their way from Camp Kendrick to Cheyenne.
1919  Woodrow Wilson spoke in Cheyenne as part of his nationwide tour in support of the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles.

1937  President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered an address from the back of a train in Thermopolis.  He would travel through Cheyenne and Casper on the same day.  Attribution:  Wyoming State Historical Society.
