The Battle of the Little Bighorn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand and,
by the Native Americans involved, the Battle of the Greasy Grass, was

Cheyenne and Arapaho people against the 7th Cavalry and Regiment
of the U.S. Army. Lt. Col. Custer (above) and 210 cavalrymen were killed
in the one day battle which was the most famous action of the Great Sioux
War of 1876, also known as the Black Hills War. It was an overwhelming
