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.

New Feature: Wyoming History In The Making

In addition to continuing to post items on individual episodes of Wyoming's rich history here, we will are also starting a new feature in which we'll note something of significant present historical interest.

This is a bit tough, we realize, as many, many stories turn out to be hugely historically significant without that being realized at the time.  When the Chinese and Japanese fell into war in 1932, for example, who would have appreciated the extent that this would play into the global tragedy of World War II, or that it would lead to the fall of the Nationalist government in 1947, giving rise to Red China.  It turned out to be enormously significant, but at the time it was probably most viewed as a big, but not earth shaking, tragedy.

Anyhow, we'll try to note some stories from time to time that we think will at least have some historical value. That is, they'd be the type of thing you would expect to find on this website in some future daily entry.
