Report Date:



One hundred and thirty-three years ago 268 soldiers of the U.S. 7th Calvary Regiment, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer, were annihilated by several thousand Indians on the banks of the Little Bighorn River. Unlike battles such as Midway, Gettysburg, and Yorktown which are typically scrutinized for their impact on the outcome of their respective conflict, the Battle of the Little Bighorn is unique in that it tends to be examined not for its impact on the events of its time, but for the motives and actions of its central figure, George A. Custer.
