Powder River Expedition (1865)

The Powder River Expedition, or the Powder River War or Powder River Invasion, of 1865, was a large and far-flung military operation of the United States Army against the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Indians in what soon became the Wyoming and Montana territories. Although soldiers destroyed one Arapaho village and established Fort Connor to protect travelers on the Bozeman Trail, the expedition is considered a failure because it failed to defeat the Indians and secure peace in the region.
