 The Deadwood Stage - Legends of America. Though the stageline was more familiarly called the Deadwood Stage, it was officially called the Cheyenne & Black Hills Stage. It was established in 1876 by Red Cloud Agency trader,Captain F. D. "Frank"... Though several attempts had been made prior to this time to establish a route from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Deadwood, South Dakota, but no one had been successful due to the many Indian attacks. However, Yates was successful and the first stage was run on September 25, 1876. (Submitted on January 10, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
