Hat Creek Battlefield

Hat Creek Battlefield



Located at the very northwest corner of Nebraska on the old Deadwood-Cheyenne Trail.

The History:

This is the site of a battle between the 5th U.S. Cavalry and the Cheyenne Indians that took place in July of 1876. Apparently, the Cheyenne had heard that General George Armstrong Custer had died and they decided to leave the reservation and return to their homeland in the Black Hills. The U.S. Cavalry was instructed to cut them off and send them back to the reservation. Buffalo Bill Cody killed a warrior named Yellow Hand at this site. (After the killing, he took Yellow Hand’s war bonnet, and displayed it at many of his wild west shows through the years.) The Cheyenne were massacred in the Battle of Hat Creek.

The Haunting:

People have reported seeing Cheyenne Indians creeping through the grass. People have also reported hearing whispering and gun shots. There have also been reports of a strange green mist swirling around the monument area.
