One of three forts built along the Bozeman Trail by the U.S. Army to protect travelers from attacks by Plains Indians, Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site gives visitors a feeling of what it was like for American soldiers to be stationed so far from civilization. Misty Stoll, site superintendent, provided insight into why American Indians resented their presence which led to two major battles, the Fetterman Fight and the Wagon Box Fight.
