For anyone interested in Native American Indian and U.S. Army 7th Cavalry history of the mid-west and west this is a must-see battlefield. I happen to have had an ancestor Pvt. Henry Seafferman (aka, Siefferman) who rode with Custer and who was killed during the battle along with Custer and was a must-see site for me. I was there previously... More

This is definitely a sensual altering experience. I first visited this place 18 years ago and now just recently and it has only depend my feelings/emotions from that first time. If you are so inclined to visit this place then please do so with an open mind and heart. Let your senses be your guide and I am sure you... More

50 yrs after seeing the Twilight Zone episode," The 7th Is Made Up Of Phantoms",I finally got to the beautiful Montana plains, and feel the phantoms of this battlefield brush my cheek & whisper in the wind.

This site does a great job of giving a true and realistic picture of what actually happened and more importantly, why it happened. It portrays an honest representation of the conflicts between the govenrment and local tribes at the time. It does not glorify Custer's actions, nor make him a hero or villain. It tells the story including the WOUNDED... More

Must see for history buffs. Since we live so close, we visit many times a year. Would suggest taking the time to read and visit all parts of the park.

I am impressed at the respect that was shown to show both sides of the massacre story. The grave stones laid out on the hill draw your attention to where Custer made his last stand. And the fairly new addition of the white and brown grave markers outstretch a five mile area to mark where those who were killed, fell;... More

Powerfull site and story. The addition of the granite stones for the first americans is telling, the circle not so much. Best to go when one of the NPS interpretive staff is giving tours, they are pros. Good gift shop, HQ needs to spend money on the exhibits.

We have always wanted to see where Custer and his men lost their lives in the so-called "Indian Wars." This beautiful, solemn, hill with a 360 degree view of the Montana prairie is an incredibly sacred place. Both the museum and the slide show tell a very balanced story of how these two cultures clashed and the price they both... More
