Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site is located along the Bozeman trail between Buffalo and Sheridan, Wyoming. Its primary objectives were to offer protection to people on the Bozeman Trail, prevent wars from breaking out among the various tribes, and to keep Indian warriors away from railroad operations in the south. It served as a frontier fort from 1866 to 1868. During that time its occupants were subject to frequent attacks by American Indian warriors under Red Cloud. - Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site -
