For Wyoming Statehood Day, Test Your State History Knowledge

It’s been 128 years as of July 10 since Wyoming became the 44th state in the union. To celebrate, we thought we’d test your knowledge of Wyoming history. This little test is courtesy of the Wyoming Almanac, but no peeking! We’ll post the answers on July 11.

Ready, set…think Wyoming!  And good luck!

True or False:

“Women suffrage stems from Esther Morris’ tea party.”

“Portugee Phillips rode War Eagle all the way to Fort Laramie.”

“All known copies of Banditti of the Plains were burned.”

“Edison invented the electric light on the shores of Battle Lake in Carbon County.”

“Chili was invented in Wyoming.”

“Winston Churchill narrowly missed being born in Wyoming.”
