In June of 1876, on the eve of America’s 100th birthday, two armies went to war. Led by the war chief Sitting Bull, the peoples of the Great Plains clashed with George Armstrong Custer’s vaunted 7th Cavalry. Due to negligence on all levels of command and the supreme horsemanship of the Plains Indians, Custer’s men were thoroughly defeated. Now almost 150 years later controversy still swirls around the events that transpired on those grassy Montana plains. On this episode we discuss The Battle of the Little Bighorn: Custer’s Last Stand.
