We're going to end this month's tour of Fort Caspar with some history. This is the original sign that detailed the fort's history. Unfortunately, it wasn't totally accurate.
As you can see from the following explanation, several important facts were misstated.
Regardless of the earlier inaccuracies, the fort is an interesting example of nineteenth century military life in Wyoming and a dramatic contrast to Fort Laramie. I encourage you to visit both if you're ever in Wyoming.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
