|Topic: Fort Laramie, Wyoming|
Fort Laramie was never the site of a battle, it was an important command
post, a staging area for troops, and a strategic communications and
transportation depot. The Pony Express, the trans-continental telegraph,
and the Deadwood Stage route all passed through Fort Laramie. Three
important treaties between the United States and Plains Indians were
signed at or near the Fort.
Much of Fort Laramie has been restored to it's original condition and this stop is well worth your time to see this glimpse of the history of the late 1800's on the high plains.
Located in town is the Fort Laramie Frontier Trading Post. This is a great place to buy gifts, especially hand tools currently being made by Indian tribes on the high plains.
