For sixty years, the army established posts ranging from crude cabins for a handful of men to sprawling complexes of more than 100 buildings. Today, several of those forts are Wyoming State Historic Sites. Last Updated on Tuesday, 12 November 2013 06:02Read more: Frontier Army Forts of Wyoming Exhibition
