Overland mail in Wyoming
Overland mail service across Wyoming and the United Stated developed because of the need to ship gold out of mining areas like Montana and California, and to "bring supplies, mail, and news to settlements." One famous enterprise, the Pony Express owned by the firm of Russell, Majors, and Waddell, operated about a year discontinuing October 26, 1861. Other mail companies, Butterfield Overland Mail Company, Pikes Peak Express Company, and Wells, Fargo and Company to name three, competed for federal mail contracts. Names associated with overland mail companies were W.B. Dinsmore and Ben Holladay. Holladay's ventures carried the route from the Oregon Trail to the Overland Trail further south in Wyoming. Other influences on mail delivery in the mid-1800's were weather, Indian depradations, and the Civil War.
