A few miles behind Birney – White Birney to be exact is the place where Battle of the Wolf Mountain, or Battle of the Butte took place. Many of present grown-ups admit that they haven't known this place and the story of integrity and courage behind it. The battle was held in wintertime of 1877 and proved fatal to combined forces of Crazy Horse and Two Moons. Military managed to capture some of Cheyenne people, especially women and held a defensive positions against warriors, who were fiercely rallying them to free their kind. The warriors finally retreated and, while historians assume it was because of strong blizzards, not many knew what was the true reason for that.
