Red speckled granite markers dot the ravines and hillside. Custer National Cemetery is part of the national monument. Located off I near Crow Agency, Montana, southeast of Billings and north of Sheridan, Wyoming, the Little Bighorn Battlefield remains a sobering experience, long after the battle was fought on June , As people have stated the to do thing here is the ranger talk! The film is good, but our summer ranger, a retired state trooper, really made the event come alive. Make sure you don't miss this part. I was unaware that there was a present day cemetery on the premises, we did walk through, we spotted Major Reno's grave.
Really glad we visited, nice gift shop. The visitor center is nice, good film. But the highlight was the minute ranger presentation describing the history and the battle.

- Custer's Last Stand.
Very moving; everyone applauded. Walk up the hill to the memorial. See the new red granite Indian memorial stones. The Indian Memorial to the north is beautifully designed. Note the gathering of the remaining Indian warriors. The feeling here is similar to Arlington National Cemetery. A very somber place. What happened here is not what the movies depict. It sheds a new perspective of how badly we treated those who lived here long before we arrived.nn.threadsol.com/map330.php
Battle of the Little Bighorn
The scope and size of the battlefield was beyond my expectations as was the duration of the battle. The scattered marble headstones offer mute testimony where soldiers and Indians fell during the two day battle. Clusters arrogance led to his death as well as that of of his men. I was moved to tears as I compared battlefield decisions made by Custer to the decisions I experienced in VietNam and found startling similarities and the resultant loss of life.
A very moving experience for me that surprised me with its simple power and the true story behind the battle. It is time for a rewrite of this chapter in American History to tell the whole story from both sides as was done here.
