Access to communities of Buford, North Dakota and Fort Union, North Dakota - South of highway. South access to Fort Union National Historic Site & Fort Buford North Dakota Historic Site. At Fort Union,tour the partially reconstructed fort and walk where many famous folk from several countries and cultures walked, folk such as Kenneth McKenzie, Alexander & Natawista Culbertson, Father Pierre DeSmet, Sitting Bull, Karl Bodmer, and Jim Bridger. From 1828 to 1867, the Fort Union Trading Post was a major fur trading post on the upper Missouri. Here, Indian tribes like the Crow, Blackfeet, Hidatsa, Assiniboine, Ojibway, Cree, and others exchanged buffalo robes and other fur for cloth, beads, blankets, cookware, guns, and knives. Fort Buford, located near present-day Williston, was one of a number of military posts established to protect overland and river routes used by immigrants settling the West. While it served an essential role as the sentinel on the northern plains for twenty-nine years, it is probably best remembered as the place where the famous Hunkpapa Sioux leader, Sitting Bull, surrendered in 1881.
