In the shadow of Sheridan Gates

This undated photograph shows the ranch of Rex Earl.  Located in the Beaver Valley community just to the east of Chadron, you can see the "Sheridan Gates" in the background.  This is the region through which many settlers and and U.S. Army troops passed in the waning years of the 1800's.   Photo is courtesy of the Dawes County Historical Society Museum.
