Steamboats On the Missouri and Powder River

A replica of the steamship, The Far West, on display at The Museum of the Upper Missouri, Fort Benton, MT. During the early and mid-1800s, steamboats cruised up the Missouri, into the Yellowstone, Big Horn, Tongue River and the northern Powder River. Steamboats brought supplies to the army that was in charge of keeping the peace on the plains, and, after the Custer Battle, carried Reno’s and Benteen’s wounded back to be treated.
