Historical Information
During the winter of 1875-76, the Indian Bureau and the U.S. Army, acting as arms of the government, ordered all Plains tribes to go into assigned reservations. In 1875, after gold was discovered in South Dakota's Black Hills, the U.S. Army ignored previous treaty agreements and invaded the region. Under the leadership of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and others, thousands of Sioux, Cheyennes, and Arapahos gathered along Little Bighorn to resist the invasion, determined to remain free of government control. Gen. George Armstrong Custer, along with Generals John Gibbon and George Crook, was sent to trap and defeat them. Custer, however, advanced much more rapidly than he had been ordered to, and approached by what he thought was a large Indian village on the morning of June 25, 1876. His quick advance put him far ahead of Gibbon's infantry brigades and Custer was unaware that General Crook's forces had been turned back by Crazy Horse.

Having a total disregard for Indian military prowess, Custer ordered an immediate attack, which proved to be one of the biggest fiascos in the history of the United States Army. Custer and his entire unit were killed in a battle now known around the world.
