This was a small battle with no real significance in the time it happened but it does show what was happening during this time. The site is starting to look a little rough though, needs more care.

A very minimalist site but still well done and an important chapter in the Plains Indian wars. The setting is beautiful and evocative.

Second time we have stopped there. If you are a history buff or especially like western history it is very well worth the stop. Only takes a few minutes to look over the site.

It does not look like much but I learned a lot when I visited the site. What I thought what a wagon box was and what I actually saw gave me a new appreciation for what the men and women went through.

The setting is very beautiful and the signage is quite helpful. Though there is not the mystery attached to this place as at the Fetterman and Little Big Horn sites, it is still a site not to be missed.
