1862.99 First ball playing in Wyoming

Location:

Wyoming

Age of Players:

Adult

The 1862 Journal of Jane Holbrook Gould, in Annals of Iowa, 3rd series v. 37, relates the experience of emigrants on the Lander Trail. Her July 20th entry, when the group was camped at the Green River crossing of the Lander Trail (near modern Big Piney, WY): "Toward night the men played ball and appeared to enjoy it very much. It seemed like old times."

Unfortunately, the Journal doesn't make clear what kind of "ball" was played.
