    Red Cloud was an Ogalala Chief that spent much of his early years at war with the Pawnee, Crow, and other Ogalala Sioux.

    In 1866 the U.S. Army began to construct forts along the Bozaman Trail, which ran through Lakota Territory. Red Cloud launched a series of attacks on the forts that resulted in the defeat of Lieutenant Colonel William Fetterman at Fort Kearny, Wyoming.

    Red Cloud was so successful, that by 1868, the United States agreed to the Fort Laramie Treaty that required the Army to abandon the forts along the Bozeman Trail.
