The capital of Wyoming, Cheyenne celebrated its 150th birthday in 2017.
As part of the celebrations, several historians gave talks on specific aspects of Cheyenne and Wyoming history.
These talks were filmed and can be seen on the Visit Wyoming YouTube channel.
If you’re planning on visiting Cheyenne or Wyoming, I suggest you watch a few of these videos to learn of the history of the city before your visit. I’ve taken the liberty of embedding them all here for you to watch easily.
