    Description

    The Far West: Original Lot of the 1875-76 Departure Dates of the Legendary Steamship which Carried Men and Supplies of the 7th Cavalry. The Far West operated on the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers in Dakota Territory from 1870 to 1883 and was part of the critical commercial traffic before the arrival of the railroads. The riverboat played an active role in the Great Sioux War of 1876. The Far West rendezvoused with the survivors at the mouth of the Little Bighorn River and carried home the wounded and the first news of the disastrous battle making the 710 mile run to Bismarck in a record time of 54 hours.
    From the Glenwood Swanson Collection.
