Legacy Park, Gillette Wyoming

These photos depict memorials in Legacy Park, in Gillette Wyoming.  An earlier war memorial outside of the Campbell County Courthouse appears earlier in this blog.

This park is a bit unusual in that it combines an all war memorial with a memorial to an individual soldier. The park also includes a memorial, not depicted in these photographs, to cancer victims.

Ft. Reno, Wyoming

This is the marker for Ft. Reno, Wyoming. Ft. Reno was occupied from 1865 to 1868, with the nearby (three miles) Reno Cantonment being occupied from 1876 to 1878. The history of the post can be read on the entry on it at the Society of the Military Horse site.

The post had a cemetery, but the bodies located t here were relocated to the national cemetery at Little Big Horn some years after the post was abandoned.
