Where was Hugh Glass eventually buried?

McKay Stuart Anderson




Dear Mr. Anderson,

All that is known of Hugh Glass’ last moments is that his luck finally ran out in another encounter with Arikara near Fort Cass in what is now Treasure County, Montana, in which he and two fellow trappers were killed. Whether they were even buried, let alone where, remains unknown.
A feature on the real Hugh Glass was published in Wild West magazine and can still be read online at
