Before the Little Big Horn
On June 25,1876, the sun rose on a bright Montana morning. The Seventh Cavalry, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel* George Armstrong Custer, was arrayed on the high ground of the Little Wolf Mountains after an all-night march up the valley of the Rosebud.
Crow scouts returned with alarming reports of a large encampment of Sioux and Cheyenne close by, along the Little Bighorn river. Headstrong and audacious to the bitter end, Custer led his troops down off the mountain and toward their date with destiny.
