In Review:

Join us today for living history.

The War Between the States caused a drastic reduction in the number of regular United States troops on the frontier.  Volunteer troops, along with captured Confederate soldiers known as "Galvanized Yankees" were stationed along the Oregon/California Route.  This little remembered but colorful period of Wyoming history will be highlighted throughout the weekend.
