Chinese Americans in Wyoming

Chinese Americans in Wyoming- Chinese Americans came to Wyoming for the opportunities with the Union Pacific Railroad.  They stayed in the territory and later in the state for coal mining.  Thriving Chinese communities began to spring up in towns like Evanston and in Rock Springs in Wyoming.  Tensions with the white communities were evident, and later legislation was implemented that pushed them out of the state and country to go back to China.
