    Little Bighorn Battlefield is located in southeast Montana, about 65 miles east of Billings. It was the site of the infamous Custer's Last Stand, on 25 Jun 1876, when he and his men were annihilated by the Indians.

    Scattered through the battlefield are markers such as these that designate where soldiers fell.

    Date of visit: Jun 2008

     In 2003 a new memorial was unveiled, dedicated to the many tribes and individuals involved in the Battle.  custer10
