Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument (U.S. National Park Service)

Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument (U.S. National Park Service): "Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument Little Bighorn River text size: printer friendly QUICKLINKS: Directions Operating Hours & Seasons Fees & Reservations Live Webcams Home Page This area memorializes one of the last armed efforts of the Northern Plains Indians to preserve their way of life. Here in 1876, 263 soldiers and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer, met death at the hands of several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors."

I happened up on this historic site on my drive from Wyoming into Montana. All of the headstones really helps register how many men and Indians were lost here. At least the casino is across the street.
