About the Ship’s Name, about the City of Cheyenne:

Cheyenne is the capital of the state of Wyoming. Named after a tribe of the Prairie Indians, the town was founded in 1867 as the end of the Union-Pacific-Railroad.

Today, Cheyenne is the center of the mining industry in the southeast of Wyoming. Every July there is an annual big rodeo in Cheyenne.
