Today our only stop of significance was at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. The National Park Service has done an excellent job of recreating what led up to this battle and how Custer's men were simply out numbered that day. Displays give equal billing to each side and recognizes that countless men on each side lost their lives on this hillside that day.
After watching a movie regarding the Indian wars and the reasons for them, we walked up the hill to the final battlefield. Quiet and eerie, not unlike the area around the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington, DC. Custer's men actually shot 35 of their own horses just to hide behind as the Indians surrounded them and continually attacked.
