Little Bighorn Battlefield Information

Learn about the Battle of Little Bighorn with a guided or self-guided tour, honor the Native Americans who fought there, and visit the Indian Memorial.

This area memorializes one of the last armed efforts of the Northern Plains Indians to preserve their way of life. Here in 1876, 263 soldiers and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer, met death at the hands of several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. In the spring and summer of 1876, the United States Government launched a military campaign upon a portion of the Sioux and Cheyenne Indians, who refused to live within the boundaries of the Great Sioux Reservation. The Seventh Cavalry and their Indian allies attacked a village of 6,000 to 7,000 people on June 25, 1876. 350 7th Cavalrymen survived. The National Park Foundation encourages and promotes local fundraising support at individual national park sites. Friends of the Little Bighorn Battlefield is a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service and raises funds to aid and directly promote management programs and objectives of the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.
