    Fort Phil Kearny

    by Basaic Written Dec 3, 2011

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Fort Phil Kearny was established in July 1866 to protect people using the Bozeman Trail heading north to the goldfields in Montana. It was named after a popular Union General. It was the largest of three forts in Wyoming and Montana along the trail. Its secondary mission was to prevent intertribal warfare. During its two year existence the fort figured prominently in the battles between the US Cavalry and the Sioux, Arapaho, and Commanche Nations.

    Fondest memory: It was interesting walking in the footsteps of history.
