The Battlefield where Custer and his soldiers met their fate is so vast it takes your breath away. No camera or video can accurately portray the vastness as you stare in wonderment on the events leading up to June 25, 1876 and thereafter, knowing full well Peace did not exist as recorded by our History. While this memorial battlefield is peaceful now, it is a silent reminder of what mankind can do to one another. This place is about 38 miles north of the Wyoming border and as you drive to and from this memorial, your imagination can unfold as you picture man's conflicts being resolved in such an open landscape filled with natural beauty. There is both a sadness and peacefulness that one must experience by actually being here. Make the decision to visit and explore Little Bighorn.

My wife and I enjoyed our stop to see where Custer met his fate. I highly recommend the film in the visitor's center which is followed by the Ranger's talk outside. The Park Ranger did a good job of setting the scene,and it helped being able to see him point out the hills and valleys where the indians and soldiers battled. Seeing the makers where all the soldiers and some of the indians fell, really put things in perspective.

Off our route of travel but well worth the diversion. You can see wher both First Peoples and US soldiers fell and how Custer's Last Stand indeed transpired. The interpretive staff at this National Monument are outstanding. In your mind's-eye the battlefield and tensions that were the root causes come to life. My 17 year old son was captivated.

My husband and I spent 6 hours at Little Bighorn National Monument. We left almost as confused as we were when we arrived about the actual events, but were certainly better educated. We had read about the battle and watched a PBS production on Custer - and the ranger's talk helped us to make some sense of what we thought we knew; but at the end of the day, no one knows exactly what happened. Then walking the trails where the battle took place, and spending time looking and thinking, brought the tragic events to life. This was certainly a day well spent and I am eager to get back home and do more reading about Little Bighorn.

Be prepared to do some walking and bring your camera. The trail down to Deep Ravine is long but offers the opportunity to imagine and reflect - and is well worth the walk.

This place is eerie. One can obtain the "feel" of the place and what Custer and his boys went through. The landscape is breathtaking and the feeling provoked were overwhelming.
