Description

The Cheyenne Leader, April 30, 1868, printed a letter "From Fort Fetterman, April 17, 1868...a big base ball match was played a few weeks since, resulting in favor of the Accomodation Club over the Laramie Club." Presumably the two teams were made up of the soldiers at the post, and/or the post sutlers, Indian agents, etc.

From Wikipedia: "Fort Fetterman was a wooden fort constructed in 1867 by the United States Army on the Great Plains frontier in the Dakota Territory approximately 11 miles northwest of present-day Douglas, Wyoming."

Douglas WY is about 55 miles E of Casper WY. Laramie WY is about 125 miles S of Douglas.

Unclear whether the Laramie Club is from Laramie, Wyoming, or just a Fort Fetterman club named the Laramie.
