Stop in the visitors center and get a full explanation of the battle.battle. There is a brief movie well worth seeing. There are three sites that need to be viewed. Go to the fort/visitor's center first. Get an explanation of what happened. Go to the killing grounds...about 3 miles away. An easy drive. Then go the scene of the wagon... 更多
The fort site is huge. Best of all, the museum and the staff presentation was superb! The drive up to the Wagon Box Fight site is worth the trip. We missed the Fetterman Massacre site. Ah well next time.
The only thing that remains of the original Ft Kearny is a rusted piece of sawmill. They do have some good maps and you can walk through the boundaries of the original fort, as well as tour the visitor center. More hallowed ground, though, was the nearby site of the Dec 1866 massacre of nearly 80 soldiers from the fort,... 更多
So much history here. The self guided tour is a must! You feel like you were there when all of this really took place. The people at the Fort site were so helpful! Answered all of our questions with great clarity. You can tell they take great pride in their jobs and this historic place!!
Great place to take a break if driving south from Sheridan. Clean rest rooms, friendly knowledgeable staff and nice historic site. From the pictures and website I did not expect much. Don't be fooled this is a hidden gem just off the highway. Well done museum with several displays and two battlefields just beyond the fort. Thank you to the... 更多
The drive is nice but the history is better when you fine the spot where it was actually performed. This fort along with many others in Wyoming are a page from the past, we hope the remembering will last. Enjoy in being and seeing where so much of yesterday happened.
At exit 44 on the I 90 near Sheridan there is nothing left of the original fort as the Sioux burned it when it was abandoned by the US Army in 1868. There is a large car park, toilets and an interpretive centre whose knowledgeable curator can talk for hours about the fort and it's history. There is also a... 更多
We recently visited Buffalo and spent some time at this battlefield. It is a fascinating little museum with a diorama that's a real work of art. We watched a video and then had a personal account of the battle that took place there from Misty, a great historian and story teller. I recommend it.
Wow! Excellent place to visit. You can feel the history of the place seeping into you as you walk the grounds. The staff was so friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the fort and the events that took place in the surrounding country. Wish I could have spent a week!
Stopped by on my way up north. There are no buildings left except for the visitor's center. The visitor's center does have some nice artifacts. There is also a 10 minute film about the history of the fort, and some of the battles that took place in the area. Not bad if you like military history.
