A remarkable battle in the early days in Wyoming. One of the most unusual battles in the history of the west was fought August 2, 1867. about five miles west of Fort Phil Kearney in northern Johnson County. Here an estimated 3,000 Indians, under Chief Red Cloud, attacked a handful of soldiers and civilians and suffered a very disastrous defeat. The dorama is in the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum.
