Additional Information: 

Rushville Nebraska is a community of about 1,100 residents. It was established as a town in 1885 along the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad. Because of its close proximity to the Pine Ridge Reservation, the Bureau of Indian Affairs used Rushville as a supply point up until the 1960s. Buffalo Bill Cody spent time in Rushville when he was recruiting for his Wild West show. Cody also filmed a reenactment of the “Battle of Wounded Knee” in Rushville.
