135th Anniversary Of The Battle Of Little Bighorn This Weekend
The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is at Crow Agency here in Montana. And the 135th anniversary is this weekend.
This area memorializes the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne in one of the Indian's 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, died fighting several thousand Lakota, and Cheyenne warriors.
