The one-hour program, free and open to the public, will be held on Aug. 1 at 7 p.m.

The Johnson County War shaped Wyoming. According to Bob Edwards, this was a dark period in Wyoming’s history and has much to teach us when wealth and arrogance clash with liberty and the rule of law.

Bob Edwards is the former museum educator and assistant director at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo. He is also the co-author of Frontier Wyoming.

NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on summer hours, and is open daily, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
