A Versatile Travel Corridor

Travel along the Bozeman Trail began in 1863 as miners carrying their supplies on packhorses or in wagons, headed toward the gold fields. Compared to other available methods and road of travel, this route was a shortcut to Virginia City. Storekeepers and freighters followed the miners. hauling sale goods in huge double-freight wagons towed by 20 oxen. The first cattle herd followed the trail in 1866, when Nelson Story's herders drove a thousand animals from Texas to Virginia City. By 1867, civilian traffic on the trail had fallen off. Indian opposition was having an effect, and travel was limited to mail patrols and military supplies. The trail was closed as a result of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868, only to reopen for military use during the 1876 campaigns.
