Battle of Little Big Horn

Seventy miles north of Sheridan WY is the memorial for Battle of Little Big Horn (Custer's Last Stand) in Montana. We could not stop with the motorhome towing the Jeep so we drove there in the Jeep this afternoon. This memorial is operated by the National Park Service.

The site includes a National Cemetery.

Custer's Last Stand at the top of this hill.

Markers are installed that indicate where soldiers had fell.

About 40 horses are buried at the memorial site.

This memorial is at the end of a five mile road. Other soldiers were backup for Custer but they did not provide help. They had their own battle here. This entire battlefield area is on a ridge.
