The Battle of the Little Bighorn, more commonly referred to as “Custer’s Last Stand” is an epic story in the annals of American history. A story that still haunts the American consciousness, even today.
In this one hour presentation, we will examine the characters and events that shaped this explosive confrontation between the vaunted 7th Cavalry under the command of the iconic George Armstrong Custer, as the U.S. Government attempts to bludgeon the Sioux and Cheyenne onto a reservation. The legendary Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse will rally their people to fight back and ultimately destroy Custer’s command.
