Tag Archives: Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

This was formerly known as the Custer Battlefield National Monument and now has a more inclusive name to reflect the Native Americans perspective. When we realized we would be driving right past the Little Bighorn Battlefield we decided to stop for a break. Unfortunately there was a storm coming from the west so we were not able to stay long. On our next visit we plan for a longer stay to better understand what happened at the Little Bighorn.

Things have changed since our last visit. There is now an Indian Memorial and markers placed where some of the Native Americans fell in battle.

There is also a Custer National Cemetery as part of the Monument.

The two major sections of the Battlefield are separated by ranch lands that had horses grazing as we drove past.
