Courage of the Soldiers and Warriors at Custer's Last Stand.
" The world will never forget the battle that began June 25, 1876, and for good reason.
Gen. George Armstrong Custer divided his forces, and instead of waiting for ammunition and supplies, he attacked a huge Indian village on the Little Bighorn River in Eastern Montana Territory. No one has been able to reasonably explain the general's actions because he died along with all his men.
Gerald Hickman, a former park ranger with the National Park Service at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, seeks to explore the mystery. What happened that pitted the brave soldiers against fierce warrior chiefs-including Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Lame White Man, Gaul, Wooden Leg and others-from the Lakota Teton Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, Southern Cheyenne and Arapahoe tribes.
The chiefs did not know it then, but their victory would make the United States government and its citizens more determined than ever to place all American Indians on government-established reservations.
Take a walk through history, explore one of history's greatest mysteries, and honor the brave men and women who died on hallowed ground with Medal of Honor.
