Chief Little Wolf

Historians believe Little Wolf was probably involved in the disastrous Fetterman Massacre of 1866, in which the Cheyenne cleverly lured a force of 80 American soldiers out of their Wyoming fort, killing them all. After Cheyenne attacks had finally forced the U.S. military to abandon Fort Phil Kearney along the Bozeman Trail, Little Wolf is believed to have led the torching of the fort. He was also a leading participant in the Plains Indians victory at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. Little Wolf has been called the greatest of the fighting Cheyenne.
