Wyoming Car Shipping
Wyoming is the tenth largest state, however it has the lowest population of any state in the country. The population is increasing at a very small rate according to the latest census data, however it is not likely to pass even the closest state in population. Geographically, the state is only one of three to have borders that are defined only by lines of longitude and latitude. Most states have borders that are formed by naturally occurring boundaries such as bodies of water or mountain ranges.
The first recorded journal of information about the state of Wyoming is from 1807 and was written by a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. There is suspicion that other European travelers explored the territory at some point, however there is no proof. In the 1850s, the Oregon Trail through Wyoming followed the same trails that Lewis and Clark followed on their first pass through the state.
Later in the nineteenth century the railroad came to Cheyenne, during 1867. The expansion of the Union Pacific Railroad also led to the expansion of Wyoming population, in following with the trends that developed while the railroad was moving westward across the country.
In 1872, Yellowstone National Park became the first national park in the United States. Wyoming was also the first state to grant women the right to vote in national elections and for many decades to follow, women in Wyoming became the first to do many other things, including serve as judges and sit on a jury.
