Cheyenne Army Escort Wagon

Thank you to the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum for entrusting Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop with this restoration! This was an existing wagon held by the collection but never restored and displayed. The museum felt it was important to display the Army Escort wagon, as the military had a strong history in the region. Such vehicles played a key role in providing supplies to the troops in the field, all the way from the frontier days through WWI. For more information on the history of the army escort wagon, read The Great Blue Army Wagon by Thomas Lindmier.
