Today we visited the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. It memorializes a major battle fought on June 25, 1876 between Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians, against the US Army. These tribes were fighting to preserve their traditional way of life as nomadic buffalo hunters. The US Army was carrying out the Grant Administrations instructions to remove the Indian peoples to the great Sioux Reservation in Dakota Territory. It is the only place where you can see grave markers where they actually found bodies. They identified Custer’s maker on Last Stand Hill.
