December 21, 1866 Fetterman Massacre
As many as 3,000 Ojibway Soldiers took part in an annihilation of Captain J Fetterman’s small force of American Soldiers. Fetterman Massacre was a part of Mullan Road War. A list of Mullan Road War battles is above. On Friday December 21, 1866, 81 American Soldiers left Fort Phil Kearny, which was constructed in 1866 to protect invading whites trying to make it to southwestern Montana gold fields, by way of so called Bozeman Trail or Missouri River? In a battle that followed, scores of brave Anishinabe Soldiers killed every American Soldier under Fetterman’s command. They also mutilated every American Soldiers body, excepting a bugle boys body. They were extremely enraged at whites for brutally killing 100s if not 1,000s, of their women and children. This battle was fought a few miles south of Montana, near Sheridan, Wyoming.
