The Fetterman Battle, for the Cheyenne known as â€œA Hundred in a Handâ€, was held on December 21, 1866. Captain William Fetterman, taunted by Indian decoys, led his regiment straight into a trap made by alliance of Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes. Again, the historical accounts are conflicting and prone to political correctness. The inscription on the monument standing there is a very vivid proof of it â€“ even just by stating it was a massacre, while it was clearly a military action.
