The Fetterman Fight was a battle during Red Cloud's War on December 21, 1866, between the Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Indians and soldiers of the United States army. All 81 men under the command of Captain William J. Fetterman were killed by the Indians. It was, at the time, the worst military disaster ever suffered by the U.S. on the Great Plains. The battle led to an Indian victory in the war and the withdrawal of the United States from the Powder River country of Montana and Wyoming.

  • Als Fetterman-Massaker – von den Indianern „Schlacht der 100 Toten“ genannt – wird ein Gefecht bezeichnet, bei der am 21. Dezember 1866 Krieger der Lakota, Arapaho und Cheyenne eine Abteilung der US-Armee unter der Leitung von Captain William Judd Fetterman vernichteten. Es war, nach dem „Grattan-Massaker“, der zweite vollständige Sieg der Indianer über eine reguläre Armee-Einheit der Vereinigten Staaten und wurde, was die Anzahl der getöteten Soldaten angeht, nur noch neuneinhalb Jahre später von der Schlacht am Little Bighorn übertroffen.
