  1. We stopped at Ft. Phil Kearny after a trip to Custer Battlefield, we found the 2 workers at the site very friendly and informed. Very nice selection of books! We bought several and found the ones suggested by the young man in the visitor center to be quite good. Nice site! Visited Fetterman site and Wagon Box site, after reading more about it, I hope to return and spend more time.

  2. I left this message on another area of this website, but this is a more appropriate area. My wife, her son (my step-son) and myself had the great pleasure of arriving on the August 2nd date of the Wagon Box anniversary. Coming from Troy, Missouri, I very much anticipated my opportunity to see the Fetterman site as well as the Box Wagon site, but was surprised to see AND experience the PASSION of the interpreters, and amazed at the personal knowledge…especially Karen in the visitor’s center! JUST amazed! Not only passion, but she took TIME to explain events! I’ve been involved in education for years teaching at Missouri Baptist University. I’ve been involved as a battalion commander of more that 500 living-historians…hard corp historians who were dedicated to proper interpretation of historical events and the passion demonstrated for Ft. Kearny and the events associated with the site were comparable to any I have ever experienced! I’m SO VERY impressed…and THANKFUL! This was TRULY a great experience and one that I would recommend to EVERYONE! I’ve been to Gettysburg, Antietam, Yorktown, Guilford Courthouse, Chickamauga, Shiloh, you name the place…I’ve probably been there; toured more that 36 countries and hundreds of historic sites that almost to a person would consider more historically significant than these sites…but I believe that this would be an error. The staff here does a phenomenal job! What a brilliant, brilliant experience…and GREAT gift shop and selection of books!!!! Thank you so, so much!

  3. I have been to the site of Ft. Phil Kearny, the Fetterman fight, and the Wagon Box fight several times over the past 40 years. The experience just keeps getting better…a better visitors center, more interpretation, and an informed staff whose passion for the subjects is almost bubbling over. There is so much history in this area of Wyoming and Montana and so accessible it’s a shame to miss it if you’re nearby. I highly recommend taking the time to visit these sites (and others) and discover more about our country’s past.

  4. It was a very informative visit. The staff was so very helpful and made our visit a Great one.
    We truly enjoyed the wagon box fight area and the Fetterman battle field was great.
    There are no words to describe the feeling of standing on the spot where so much history
    was made.
    Thank you all for preserving our heritage!

  5. Misty, We just got back last week from 2 weeks in Wyoming and one of the major highlights of the trip, at least for me was visiting your Ft Phil Kearny site and chatting with your staff about the fort’s history on Saturday, August 26th as well as visiting with Bob Wilson on the morning of the 24th. This was my second time there (my first was with Terry Johnston in 1999 on his Northern Plains Indian Wars tour) but with the reading on the fort’s history (that Bob had pointed me to), this time it made much more sense. I left one of the pictures of my diorama of Ft Phil Kearny with your staff that Saturday which I hope they shared with you. Thank you for the job you’re doing keeping the memory of that “saga” of American history alive.

  6. I have particular interest in the history of the area and visited the Fort Phil Kearney site with my wife with the intention of learning more about the fort and the Fetterman battle. We found the staff enthusiastic, informative and knowledgeable and I learned a good deal more than I could have any other way.
