The Gaw map. One of my favorites. Note the proposed Miles City Deadwood rail line. ETA: When Jim posts the link, that is. I commented before I realized the link wasn't here. I used to have that map in my office and practically memorized it.

Yeah, that proposed RR line really dominates the graphical info. Amorette, I know you probably have the best available reference materials on the businesses that existed on Main and (what was then) Park, but can you (or anyone else) point me to anything that I can access?
The 10 and 40 mile indemnity limits are related to the Norther Pacific. Notice that they parallel the track line. Don't know about the old Fort Custer Trail. I know that Mingusville isn't Mingusville anymore.
Quick question, too lazy to start yet-another-thread. Anyone have info on the first trial in MC, of the three Cheyennes who attacked the soldiers working on the telegraph line? I can't seem to find much about it other than my one source (The Plainsmen of the Yellowstone: A History of the Yellowstone Basin). This is when McElrath showed up in town and soon after started the Yellowstone Journal.
