The Story Behind This Haunted Battlefield In Nebraska Is Truly Creepy
The Battle of Warbonnet Creek was a short, intense fight between the U.S. Army (led by Buffalo Bill Cody) and a band of Cheyenne warriors. There was only one casualty in the battle, but the site is said to be haunted by the spirits of many…and once you hear the story, you may understand why.

Reports of the footsteps, whispers, and green mist have been fairly consistent. It seems that, although these souls did not lose their lives on the battlefield that day, they are forever tied to the site…and forever restless.
You can visit the Warbonnet Creek Battlefield Site northeast of Harrison at the intersection of Hat Creek Road and Montrose Road, just north of the Montrose church.
