AAA Editor Notes
Fetterman Monument stands 20 mi. s. on US 87. On this site in 1866 Col. William J. Fetterman disobeyed orders to stay off the Bozeman Trail and took to the trail with only 81 men under his command. Crazy Horse and 2,000 warriors ambushed and killed the entire force. The site is near Fort Phil Kearny.
