Date: Saturday, July 20, 2019

Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM


Event Description:

On the 153rd Anniversary of the Templeton Fight, G.L. “Buck” Damone III, BLM Archaeologist, will be presenting new findings on this battle and other battles along Crazy Woman Creek during 1866 and 1867. Buck’s discoveries are based on his extensive research of the Bozeman Trails crossing of Crazy Woman’s Fork. This was perfect terrain for Lakota and Cheyenne warriors – defending their homelands from what they saw as an invasion – to surprise and attack road weary emigrants and soldiers. Sponsored by Fort Phil Kearny/Bozeman Trial Association and Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site. For more info see www.fortphilkearny.com or email fpkbta@gmail.com
