Wyoming PBS to screen Bozeman Trail documentary

SHERIDAN — Wyoming PBS will host a screening of “The Bozeman Trail: A Rush to Montana’s Gold,” a locally produced film documenting the trail. The film will be screened Monday from 7-9 p.m. at Buffalo High School and Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. at the Whitney Center for the Arts on the campus of Sheridan College.

A panel discussion with producer Tom Manning will follow each screening. Light snacks will be served.

The Bozeman Trail was a shortcut to the newly discovered gold fields of Montana Territory. Cutting through the heart of Indian country, it provoked a clash of cultures that exploded into warfare, destruction and tragedy. It was a singular road that changed this part of the American West forever.

Both screenings are free and open to the public.

Sheridan College is located at 1 Whitney Way.
