Grummond from the safe confines of Fort Phil Kearny Fort Phil Kearny on the Bozeman_Trail|Bozeman Trail into an ambush. Crazy Horse personally lured Fetterman's infantry up what whyoming locals call Massacre Hill while Grummond's cavalry followed the other six decoys along Peno Head Ridge and down towards Peno Creek, where several Cheyenne women were taunting the soldiers. Meanwhile, Cheyenne leader Little_Wolf and his warriors, who had been hiding on the opposite side of Peno Head Ridge, blocked the return route to the fort. The Lakota warriors then came over Massacre Hill and attacked the infantry. There were additional Cheyenne and Lakota hiding in the buckbrush along Peno Creek behind the taunting women, effectively surrounding the soldiers. Seeing that they were surrounded, Grummond headed back to Fetterman to try to repel them in numbers. The soldiers were wiped out by a warrior contingent numbering almost 1,000. In some history books it is known as Red_Cloud's but Cloudwas not present that day. The ambush, known as the Fetterman Massacre, was at the time the worst Army defeat suffered on the GreatPlains

Wagon Box Fight
On August 2, 1867, Crazy Horse participated in the wagon boxfight near Fort Phil Kearny.Lakota forces numbering between 1000 and 2000 attacked a wood cutting crew near the fort. Most of the soldiers fled to a circle of wagon boxes without wheels, using them for cover as they fired at the Lakota. The Lakota took substantial losses from the new repeater rifles the soldiers carried, which could fire ten times a minute compared to the old musket rate of three times a minute. The Lakota would charge after the soldiers had fired, expecting them to be using the older muskets. The soldiers suffered five killed and two wounded, while the Lakota had between 50 and 120 casualties Many are buried in the hills that surround Fort Phil Kearny in Wyoming "my lands are where my dead lie ...
