Mar 3 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Fetterman Fight ranks among the most crushing defeats suffered by the U.S. Army in the nineteenth-century West.

With no survivors on the U.S. side, the only eyewitness accounts of the battle came from Lakota and Cheyenne participants. Learn more about these Native views at the Natrona County Library and Fort Caspar Museum’s monthly Reading the West Book Club.
