This is a fairly new memorial to represent the loss of Indian lives at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, June 25 1876.The Little Bighorn National Monument in Montana memorializes one of the last armed efforts of the Northern Plains Indians to preserve their ancestral way of life. . it was an outstanding military success for them – the US army met defeat and death at the hands of several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. One of the first times the tribes came together to ‘drive’ the white man from their lands, but within ten years they were all in reservations.
The actual Site of the Battlefield and monument is testament to preserving the history. It shows the exact spot where Custer and his men were found; only 100 Indians died on that actual day but almost 300 of Custer’s men.
