Cole et Walker upon leaving the Black Hills to join Conner on the Rosebud had a change in plan. Repeatedly contacting Teton Sioux who gave them fierce battle they turned South to safety et supplies at Fort Conner. From the Black Hills they had been followed closely by Sitting Bull's Hunkpapas. Not only did several soldiers lose their lives, the Hunkpapas allowed them no rest. Their mounts became thin et sickly while the ponies remained healthy et fleet. Soon finding themselves in dire circumstances Cole et Walker shot all their horses et burnt their saddles at night for heat. Still miles from Fort Conner the survivors of these two columns limped et crawled their way into Fort Conner anxiously looking over their shoulders toward their pursuers the Teton Hunkpapas. Conner after waiting many days without word or sight on the Rosebud for Cole et or Walker marched his column toward his fort on the Powder. Enroute coming across the bodies of dead soldiers; dead horses covered with ice; et old camp fires of burnt saddles. The Sioux, most of which by now in their winter camps, allowed Conner to arrive safety within the confines of his fort. He was then to learn Red Cloud's warriors held it in seige. Later he was re-called et re- assigned to the Kansas area. The survivors of his three columns were likewise re-assigned. His fort was renamed to Fort Reno et re- garrisoned by the survivors of the two infantry companies who escorted Sawyer's wagon train to Montana. Red Cloud renforced his force around Fort Reno et waited. The government sent a peace commission to Laramie to confer with the chiefs. Being mid-winter only a few bands came in. The Brules were represented by Spotted Tail; Standing Elk; et Swift Bear. The commission having failed et a Council set to be held in spring. Spotted Tail et Red Leaf of the Brules came again et this time Red Cloud although busy around Fort Reno sent Man-Afraid-Of-His- Horses et an escort of one thousand Teton Oglala warriors to represent him. The commission failed again et set a meeting to follow in one moon. At this council Red Cloud attended. Many Sioux et Cheyenne came. Colonel Carrington et seven hundred men of the Eighteenth U.S. Infantry was advised to camp removed from Fort Laramie. The Teton Brule Chief Standing Elk soon learned why Carrington was there et where he was going. Before the council convened all the Sioux knew Carrington planned to build a fort north of Fort Reno on the Bozeman Trail. This news angered the chiefs who didn't want the whites in the Powder Country in the first place. Needless to say the council was a failure; commissioners returned East; Red Cloud returned to his seige; et Carrington selected a site et built his fort: Phil Kearney on the Bozeman Trail.
