May 22, 2018 - Little Big Horn

After seeing Butte, we drove to the small town of Reed Point, MT., where camped between the freeway and the railroad tracks. I didn’t hear a thing but Mel heard the trains. Nice RV park called the Old West RV Park. It is about 2 hours from Billings. We are on our way to Little Big Horn National Monument. We spent about 3 hours there. We first watched the movie at the visitors center which set the stage for the rest of the tour. The battlefield was about 3.5 mile drive, with an audio tour that was narrated through your cell phone.

Sep 21, 2017 - The Battle of the Little Bighorn

We made a stop at the battlefield where the Battle of Little Bighorn took place. Amazing history at this place. It really was a failed attempt to round up the Native Americans because of the westward expansion. This area memorializes the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne in one of the Indian's last armed efforts to preserve their way of life. Here on June 25 and 26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota, and Cheyenne warriors.

Sep 30, 2012 - Custer National Cemetery

We were up early this morning and on the road by 9 A.M. We drove just a bit over 300 miles before deciding to boondock in a tiny town called Crow Agency, Montana. I am glad we don't make reservations, our plans seem to change daily. :-) Neither of us had ever heard of Crow Agency before, but it was too interesting to just pass by. We saw all the signs about the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and decided it was worth taking an extra day to visit. Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument preserves the site of the June 25...

Sep 4, 2011 - On to Montana!

On to Montana Sunday (8/28) morning came much too early and it was time to saddle up. We called ahead and made reservations at the 7th Ranch RV Camp in Garryowen, MT (close to the Little Bighorn Battlefield). We took Route 212 to the WY line, a short distance to the MT line and into Crow Agency, MT. We traveled a total of about 216 miles through some scenic high plains. We passed close to an active forest fire. The road was fine for an RV. We landed at 7th Ranch around mid-afternoon and got set up. This is a nice “camp”. It is actually a...

Aug 15, 2011 - Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

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...

Jun 26, 2010 - Little Big Horn, Montana

We had some heavy rain and thunderstorm activity last night so we decided to cut Yellowstone a night short and get a head start towards Mt. Rushmore. We made an unintended stop at the Battle of Little Big Horn site also known as Custer's last stand. It was well worth it, we happened to be there for the anniversary weekend of the battle which happened on June 25th, 1876. We were lucky enough to get the perfect park ranger to set the stage and fill us in on all the details of the battle (he was a retired high school football coach who could...
