Little Bighorn Battlefield, A Place of Reflection, Montana

Ted and I always search out the local history in every new town we visit. We were told we had to go to Little Bighorn Battlefield. We arrived just in time to hear the Ranger give a very animated, one hour history lesson about the US Army’s 7th Calvalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne battle knows as Battle of Little Bighorn.  This battle was the Sioux and Cheyennes last ditch effort the preserve their way of life and their land.  They won the battle against Lieutenant Colonel Custer and his troops but eventually lost their land and life as they knew it. A piece of history worth learning about and a park definitely worth visiting (recommended book, A Terrible Glory – Custer and The Little Bighorn by James Donovan).
