The remains of about 220 soldiers, scouts and civilians are buried around the base of this memorial.
White marble headstones scattered over the battlefield denote where the slain troopers were found and originally buried. In 1881 they were reinterred in a single grave on this site.
The officer's remains were removed in 1877 to various cemeteries throughout the country.
General Custer was buried at West Point. ( But then he would be wouldn't he)

V2 the Battlefiled
V3 the Battlefield
V4 the Memorial to the Native Americans. Behind where the shot was taken from are a number of large marble plaques each devoted to a different tribe and bearing the names of those Native Americans who fell.
V5 The battlefield
V6 No longer a hero but recognised for what he was, at least elsewhere

Every story has two sides. I find this immensely moving, particularly as you have kept a balance between the two. Thanks for this, it's quiet, sober, under-stated history.

Not a huge memorial for this turning point on the history of America. The random headstones are such a symbol of the old west with the cast metal railing surrounding. Boot hill springs to mind. They pushed and pushed till the native Americans had to stand, and they did as we know, but it led to a terrible price being paid in the end.

You've told the story well with your images Malcolm, never easy when looking into another countries history.

Very interesting and emotive subject but then that was it at the time and there was a price to pay.
