Located 70 miles north of Sheridan in Montana is the Little Bighorn National Monument. This area memorializes the Battle of the Little Bighorn, one of the most famous battles in American history. Here on June 25-26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. This marked one of the last armed efforts of the Northern Plains Indians to preserve their ancestral way of life.
