Travel Tips for Goodland

Kidder Battle Site

by basstbn

We drove many miles over dirt and gravel roads to this site to find nothing but the silhouette of one infantryman pointing his gun at one mounted Indian. I thought it sufficiently ironic to photograph this site with a No Hunting sign in the foreground. Later we learned that many historians don't believe this to be the site of the battle at all. Sigh.

In 1867 Lt. Lyman Kidder's ten-man patrol encountered Cheyenne Indians. His party's remains were later found by George Custer and members of his 7th Calvary.

The locals still call this the Kidder Massacre site; but to be honest, it was the site of a battle between two groups of armed men in which the Cheyennes were victorious, not a massacre in which a group of "savages" attacked a group of unarmed civilians.
