Sharp, Franklin, Taylor, Doe, and Kelly, and the bloody 1860s

A marker locating the spot where various Oregon Trail immigrants lost their lives during the Indian Wars of the early 1860s, which were coincident with the Civil War.  This spot is along Interstate 25 in Converse County, Wyoming.  Some pipeline work was going on at the time, which doesn't contribute to the overall scene in this picture.
