It was wild times for sure on June 25th and 26th of 1876. We call it the Battle of the little Bighorn, The people native to this land that we now call ours called the fight the battle of the greasy grass. Lever guns were blasting and spitting lead, .45/70 Springfields were firing at times and being cussed and thrown about. Revolvers were firing and blackpowder smoke filled the air. Arrows and spears and knives were bloodied, many men of both races were killed and bled out in the prairie sun during 2 hot days in June somewhere in Montana. It almost doesn't seem real. Can you imagine those times?

Wild times indeed! I know many yearn to have been alive back then, I actually am glad I live now a days.

That was quite a battle. I have been reading about the Plains Indian Wars and that was indeed an interesting time in our history. I would like to tour some of the sites of some of the battles but I understand that a lot of them are now on private property. At any rate, it was an interesting time. God bless the memories of both sides.
Lever guns were used..and it was the Indians that had them..not Custer.
Once again, the private sector proved it was more efficient to adapting to the times than Washington.
Just a quick note, regardless of how Wikipedia spells it, it's The Battle of Little Big Horn.

I found this to be pretty interesting. It must have been some fight, soldiers following orders, a native people's fighting for their families,land, and culture.
Nothing expresses Liberty more than, the report of a rifle shot fired in the defense of Freedom.
