history acquired by US from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase 1803; Fort Laramie, a trading post, settled 1834; women achieved the vote 1869; became a state 1890.
The region was explored 1807 by trapper John Colter, who was the first white person to see the Yellowstone area and its geysers and hot springs. The Union Pacific Railroad came through 1867–68; Wyoming then became a territory and passed a pioneering women's suffrage act. Despite the development of its energy resources, Wyoming remains sparsely settled, with large ranches dotting the arid landscape.
