In 1876 George Armstrong Custer - the brave, reckless and vain Civil War hero - met an ignoble end at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. And every year, re-enactors in Montana recreate the clash between the 7th Cavalry Regiment and Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne warriors. Mo Rocca visits the Little Bighorn National Park, and talks with historian Nathaniel Philbrick about the soldier most remembered for his darkest hour.

The main sound is the "Courtesy Honk" which is used to get the attention of other drivers in a non-emergency scenario. It's two quick chirps of the horn that is not only friendly sounding, but it's not as loud as a normal car horn.

Crazy Horse rides along the ravine at 00.00 and up towards Custer. The White Markers indicate the positions of where soldiers fell and were found after the battle. It is now believed that, toward the end of the battle, 40 or so soldiers broke away from Last Stand Hill and made for the ravine, where they were shot. Personally and being no expert in the battle, I would have run 'away' from the Indian encampment , the ravine, etc. See what you think when you've walked from the ravine to the Last Stand Hill
Also known as ‘Custer’s Last Stand’, the battle was one of the most significant clashes of the Great Sioux War of 1876. The Black Hills of South Dakota were sacred to the Plains Indians, and had been recognized as such in the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868. However, the discovery of gold there six years later led to a gold rush of white settlers in breach of the treaty. Sitting Bull inspired fellow Plains Indians to form an alliance against the invasion of their lands, and by late spring 1876 thousands of warriors had joined him at the Little Bighorn River in an area they referred to as the Greasy Grass. Determined to drive the natives back to the reservations, the US Army dispatched cavalry to engage them. When Custer, leading the 7th Cavalry Regiment, spotted a Sioux camp on the 25th June he decided to attack it with his 600 men. However, the Indian forces outnumbered his troops and Custer was soon the victim of a pincer movement when Crazy Horse led another group of Sioux to surround him. Within an hour Custer and his men were dead, having been overwhelmed by up to 3,000 warriors. However news of the defeat prompted outrage amongst many white Americans and, over the next year, the Sioux gradually surrendered following continued US Army attacks against their property.
