A Look Back in Time: Nov. 10, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Nov. 10, 1919.

For the first time in many years, Sheridan today found herself almost completely isolated from the outside world with all telegraph wires riddled by blizzards.

Rees Davis, vice president of the state federation of labor, said today that when the miners in the Sheridan field get official word that the strike has been canceled in obedience to the order of the court, they will quietly return to work.

Mayor Camplin today issued a proclamation asking for the general closing of business in Sheridan at 11 o’clock tomorrow in observance of the first anniversary of the signing of the armistice.

Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Stevenson of Ranchester are in Sheridan shopping and attending to business matters.
