    Washita Battlefield National Historic Site ~Cheyenne, OK

    Friday, November 17th, 2017

    “On November 27, 1868, Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer led the 7th U.S. Cavalry on a surprise dawn attack on a Cheyenne village led by Peace Chief Black Kettle.” (from the Washita Battlefield website)

    There is a small museum that helps you understand the importance of the area and what happened there.

    Short walk near the visitor center that has a lot of information on the area.

    A couple miles from the visitor center is the battlefield site.

    There is a walking tour that you can take on the battlefield.

    I highly recommend it.

    There is nothing like reading the history as you walk in the same place it happened.

    This space feels sacred.

    If you want a quiet moment to reflect this is the place to do it.

    Some of our history is sad but I want to learn that also.
