Three sisters history vacation
My sisters and I were surprised to see how big Fort Phil Kearny was and to find out how close the Fetterman massacre was to the Fort. A lady named Starr went out of her way to answer all our questions and made the whole history of the area come alive. Please tell her how much we appreciated all the information she gave us. It was a very special day for us on a 2 week vacation. Everything was so neat and tidy, too. Judy Aster
Vey Excellent Presentation
Misty made a wonderful presentation today to myself and nine other volunteers and staff of NHTIC in Casper. We came away with a tremendous amount of new knowledge that will probably impact the Native American portion of our presentations at NHTIC. Misty also continued to address questions afterward. Her knowledge and her ability to present it were wonderful.
Return to Fort Phil Kearny
I was first here in Sept. of 1973 when there was just a cabin and a flag pole. I noticed the sign saying there was a visitor center and decided to stop. Congratulations on this expanding site. I'm quite impressed by what has been accomplished and it caused me to read once again the book on "Fort Phil Kearny" that I purchased in in 1973. They were in almost constant conflict and the story should be better known. Praise to Starr for being a great host and making the visit more enjoyable.
AN UNEXPECTED TREAT
The visitor center guide STARR was helpful and bouncy and full of good information about the fort. She had plenty of trivial details and bits about the fort that the general public don't know. She was very enthusiastic.
Wow! Great people who are very enthusiastic about this facility really made our day. Starr & Kevin were remarkable! We've already passed the word along and are working on recommending this site/story as a wonderful screenplay. Let's cross our fingers.
Very worthwhile, amazing place!
Very passionate staff! Friendly and very interesting. Loved this place!
Well worth the time
An unexpected pleasure. I had studied the Fetterman Massacre at the Army's Command and General Staff School in the 1990s and always wanted to visit the battlefield. We stumbled upon it on a motorcycle ride quite by accident. It was well worth the stop. Maty took time out to orient us and share her insights. The fort and battlefield were well marked. I would recommend this stop to everyone.
What a treasure!
Thank you so much for preserving this historic landmark! Kevin, the British guide was absolutely wonderful! He was dressed for his presentation and was very informative! You could tell he loved what he was doing!
A Great Place to Visit
We were looking for a place to stop and eat our picnic lunch, and saw this on the map. What a great decision to stop there it turned out to be. We had a great visit, and learned so much. Our guide was very interesting, told great stories, and held the attention of the 6 teenagers we had with us.
I love this fort. It is really unique for forts in the west, as it is one of the only ones they built with a wooden stockade. Too bad the state doesn't spring for the funds to rebuild the entire fort instead of just the corners. That would be truly amazing for visitors.
We had the guide give us the tour this time and it was well worth it. He gave us some facts about the fort and the people who lived there for it's brief history that I had not remembered hearing before.
