Battle of Little Bighorn

Visited the hill where Custer made his last stand and died along side 236 of his men.  Spent hours learning the history of the area and of the battle and of the Native people who were defending their homes and their way of life.  In addition to the museum there is a 4 mile drive through the rolling hills and markers show were Custers men fell.  Some markers are alone but many are in groups of 2-3.  There is also a memorial of headstones for men killed in the line of duty from after the civil war until Vietnam.  Lots to reflect on and learn while the girls earned their Jr ranger patches.  Only Anna and Clara were able to earn them here.  It was too challenging for Elayna this time.
