The Wyoming Tribune for June 26, 1916. On the verge of war
The Wyoming Tribune could always be counted on to be the most dramatic of Wyoming's newspapers at the time. This June 26 edition was no exception.
Of interest, Little Big Horn was being reenacted, with only forty years having passed since that event.
Also of interest, while the mobilization of the Guard, the raising of the Wyoming National Guard, and the crisis with Mexico remained important news, these events once again were no longer of the front page of nearly every local paper after this date. They didn't disappear, they just weren't there every day. The fear that the US would go to war with Mexico started to subside, even if remained a very real fear.
