Cheyenne State Leader for September 17, 1916. The Wyoming Guard to the border, and Villas raid on Chihuahua
The Wyoming National Guard is ordered to the border. On the same day, showing how initial news reports might not be fully accurate, the Villista raid on Chihuahua was reported as a defeat, when in reality, it was not. A better question would have been how a force that had been down to 400 men just a few weeks prior now had many times that number.
