Montana - Little Big Horn

The Battlefield of Little Big Horn is full of symbolic and historic significance, a place where many died: On one side the callous arrogance of General Custer leading his men stupidly to annihilation, on the other Native Americans defending their way of life, doomed despite their victory on the battlefield. The scenery is beautiful, but the ghosts of that long-ago battle can be imagined as they swept across this landscape to their impending fate. And for me the poignancy of nine surviving warriors gathering there in the year I was born.
