Independence Day was a major event for the soldiers stationed at Fort Laramie, and even today it's a big day for visitors to the fort. So, what better day could there be to show you another picture of the fort, this time with a flag as the centerpiece? The parade ground was empty when I took this picture, but on July 4 it would have been filled with soldiers and their families, celebrating the day with parades, special foods and fireworks.
