Little Bighorn was surprisingly interesting. One can imagine the Indians camped down along the river, while Custer and his troops move in, for what they thought would be an easy engagement. Don't skip the video, and walk the prairie, stopping where so many people lost their lives.

We visited the battlefield more at more husband's urging - it took us out of the way of our Bozeman/Yellowstone visit. I was told by two friends prior to departure that it would be well worth it, and it was. As my husband stated after the visit, this land just sort of "speaks to you." We started in the visitor...

Show your respect for the fallen of the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne. The Native Americans response at this battlefield was one of the 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,... More

It appears that Custard and his men were sorely outnumbered, most likely because he and his company split directions. The battle field stretches across 5 miles. The park authorities did a great job trying to lay out marker information to assist you to visualize the battle as it occurred. I would recommend not going to the hill where Custard made... More

This place was absolutely fascinating. Of all the places I visited out West, this was one of the most memorable and I recommend it to all.The story of the event is unbelievable. As well as being fascinated by the battlefield, we also enjoyed visiting the museum and seeing all the artifacts. This was my second visit and I will definitely... More

Two cultures clashed and both lost. This museum tells the story with a balanced view. Take time to walk the battle ground and breathe the Montana air in this sacred spot.

The park does an amazing job of presenting facts and maintaining the area. Plan to spend no less than 4 hours to give the grounds and the experience the time it deserves to impress upon the whole of the history of the times, the actual battle and the repercussions this day made to the way of life to every person...

I've been to Gettysburg in Pennsylvania and I've been to the Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana and, in both cases, I got a deep feeling of awe and respect and understanding from walking the grounds of two of the most historic landscapes in our nation's history. Ironically, Gettysburg was where General George Armstrong Custer made his reputation as a gallant... More

An excellent way to gain an understanding and appreciation of why the Native Americans won the Battle of the Little Bighorn but ultimately lost the war and their way of life.

If you are any sort of history buff, this is a must visit. We were fortunate, during a rainstorm, to hear a presentation of the battle from one of the park rangers that is an expert. He not only told the story, he made it come alive! I would have paid big bucks to here him talk about something that... More
