Wyoming has fewer people than any other state in the U.S. It is shaped like a rectangle. The western half of the state is filled with mountains. The eastern half is all plains. Wyoming has always had a lot of cattle ranches. Cattle ranches are farms where people raise cows for meat. The Johnson County War happened in Wyoming in 1892. On one side of the war was the cattle ranchers who had fenced off parts of the land. On the other side were cattle ranchers who moved their cows wherever the grass grew. These ranchers believed that the land did not belong to any one person. They believed that the land was for everyone to use.
