About the event

It  was America’s Centennial year. A time when our relatively young nation  was celebrating its technological achievements and national pride. When  news reached the east of America’s premiere Indian fighter George  Armstrong Custer and his elite 7th Cavalry defeat at the  Little Bighorn at the hands of the Plains Indians it was the modern  equivalent of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. On the minds of those who heard the  news was “How could this happen?” The nation’s angry response was swift  and unrelenting. Although Custer’s command was wiped out, the Battle of  the Greasy Grass was high noon for the Plains Tribes.
