Pickett had been a distinguished officer in the confederate army and first came to the basin in September 1879. In spring 1883, he established a ranch near the Pitchfork Ranch, on a tributary of the Greybull River (the smaller stream is now known as Pickett's Creek). Pickett was an energetic and competent man, and he directed his efforts toward creating a new county to encompass the Big Horn Basin alone. Unfortunately, it was a complicated time, with statehood looming. As part of drafting a constitution, many propositions were afoot setting Northern Wyoming, 1890.
Gallagher pleaded not guilty to these charges and was allowed bond. 12 In 1892, Big Horn County was formed. When the governor of Wyoming was petitioned to organize Big Horn County, however, Fremont County brought a lawsuit to stop the organization of the county. The contentions went back to the issues with which Pickett had earlier struggled. Fremont County asserted that Pickett's legislation had not trumped the Wyoming Constitution but had done exactly the opposite, and that the constitution's minimum population and property value requirements for creation of a county should rev ail.
The land in the center of the Big Horn Basin is far too dry to support farming from rainfall alone, but those high mountains around the basin supply water in the form of streams rushing down from snowcapped peaks. These streams carry large volumes of water that can be diverted and spread upon the land. Land seemingly unable to grow anything but a sparse crop of sagebrush becomes remarkably fertile with the simple addition of water. Thus, settlers came in along the larger streams of the basin, dug irrigation ditches, and started growing alfalfa and grain.
