Wyoming Modern History

The actions of the WSGA caused discontent among small farmers. A wave of indignation was raised by the 1889 lynching of farmers Ella Watson and Jim Averell. Frank Canton, a Johnson County sheriff in the early 1880s and later employed by the WSGA, was thought to be involved in many of the murders of real or alleged cattle thieves.

To counter the WSGA, farmers formed their own organization, the Northern Wyoming Farmers and Producers Association (NWFSGA). It was led by Nate Champion.

The crisis came in 1892 when WSGA founder Frank Wolcott and Frank Canton recruited a small “private army” of hired thugs in Texas and brought them to Wyoming. The “regulators”, as this armed detachment was called, had already prepared lists of people to be executed. The first target of the “regulators” was Nate Champion, who was shot on April 8, 1892.

The Johnson County Sheriff assembled a squad to arrest the militants and surrounded them. Realizing that the civilian authorities were unable to stop the bloodshed and seeking to protect the WSGA mercenaries from retribution, the Governor of Wyoming appealed to the President of the United States with a request for military intervention. By order of the twenty-third President of the United States, Benjamin Garrison, the US Army Cavalry Regiment was placed under arrest by the “Regulators”.

None of the organizers of the “Johnson County War” and the mercenaries were punished. Tension in Wyoming persisted for some time, even troops were transferred from the neighboring state of Nebraska to maintain order.
