Forts, Fights, and Frontier Sites

Bringing history forward is what Candy Moulton has done with Forts, Fights, and Frontier Sites.

Detailed maps and clever symbols indicate if the Wyoming sites are military, Indian, railroad and so forth. The alphabetical sites range from preserved areas, such as Fort Laramie, to those that have nothing left, save a historical marker. In this wonderful companion to her Roadside History of Wyoming, Moulton has admirably showcased Wyoming’s significant historic sites.
