From Busby one may drive to Rosebud Battlefield, for Cheyenne better known as Where the Girl Saves Her Brother, a remote, overlooked place of solitude where one can sit back and listen to the wind while you reflect on what's happened there.

In this battle, on June 17, 1876, while not victorious, Cheyenne and Sioux warriors suspended general Crook's army from advancing into Indian Territory, which was a prelude to George Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn 8 days later. The Cheyenne name of the battle comes from Buffalo Calf Road Woman, sister of Chief Comes In Sight. She raced in the battle to save him as his horse was killed and he was left alone fighting Crook's Crow scouts. She succeeded and they rode together on her horse accompanied with cries of warriors in honor of her courage. It is said, that both the scouts and the soldiers honored her as well.
