You are going into our country where we hunt. This is the only good big hunting ground left for us. Your people have taken the rest or scared the game away. We won’t let our women and children starve. This is where we make meat. We will keep this land. . If you will turn back to the Platte, we will let you go. We will not hurt you. com Fort Laramie was the site of a parlay between Red Cloud and the peace commissioner. He wanted Red Cloud to make peace and to not block use of the Bozeman Trail.

But these plans didn’t work out as hoped. Carrington strengthened Fort Reno on the Powder River. Then he built Fort Phil Kearny at the fork of the Piney River. On the Bighorn in Montana, he built Fort C. F. Smith. But he couldn’t build on the upper Yellowstone. His supply of troops wouldn’t stretch that far. Red Cloud knew he and his men couldn’t destroy the forts. Instead the warriors attacked anything moving outside or between the forts. They raided supply trains. And they stole horses and mules whenever possible.
