Cheyenne & Ft. Laramie.
The Treaty of Fort Laramie was signed in 1868, and guaranteed the Lakota ownership of the Black Hills in Wyoming Territory. The purpose of the negotiations was to end Indian hostilities between white settlers and miners traveling the Bozeman Trail in parts of Wyoming and Montana. Gardner witnessed and documented the event. Working for the US Government Peace Commission, he was the only photographer present. Gardner, missing the actual signing of the treaty, focused on the people and events that followed.
