LIttle Bighorn

The battle between Custer's soldiers and the Indians covered several miles. On the rolling hills above the Little Bighorn river are white markers where soldiers died and brown markers where Indians died. Custer divided his troops with Majors Benteen and Reno. Custer and his 225 troopers were all killed because he did not realize that the Indian village he was attacking have 2000-3000 Indians.
This national monument is very well done and an interesting place to visit.
