Near Fort Robinson State Park in Nebraska, a Northern Cheyenne monument serves to honor the 130 Northern Cheyenne men, women and children who made a bold move toward freedom in 1879. Now, their story is being memorialized in a healing trail along the 3,700-mile Great American Rail-Trail® that will honor their legacy. Also, don’t miss Rails to Trails’ recent feature article on the Northern Cheyenne Journey Home.
