The Battle at Little Big Horn is one that many Americans have heard of, but most don’t know much about it. This lesson will help you learn more about this famous fight between U.S. soldiers and Native American tribesmen on June 25th 1876 near present-day Crow Agency, Montana. You’ll find out what happened during the battle, how the battle ended, who won, and why there’s so much controversy over whether or not Custer committed suicide.

The Battle at Little Bighorn actually occurred on three different days: May 29, 30, 31st; however we’re only going to talk about Day 2 because it is when the majority of fighting took place. In fact, if you look up “Battle of Little Bighorn”, Wikipedia says the actual number killed on day 1 is unknown. However, according to their article, at least 24 were wounded on the first day alone. So I think they mean that no exact numbers can be known for either side. On Day 3, both sides retreated back to camp. Day 4 saw the start of the infamous Sand Creek Massacre where hundreds of unarmed civilians were slaughtered without any provocation. And finally, after these events had taken place, General George Armstrong Custer rode into South Dakota with orders to capture Sitting Bull.
