Fort Buford was established at the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers in the late 1860s, where it served a major role in the Great Sioux War. Life at the fort was typical of similar forts throughout the plains in the second half of the 19th century.
The fort trader’s complex was one of the most popular places among soldiers. It housed a bar, gambling areas, and a canteen with food to augment the army diet.
