Battle of Little Bighorn
Transcript of Battle of Little Bighorn
Where and When?
The Battle of Little Bighorn was fought in the Montana territory on June 25, 1876
The battle was between Lt. George Armstrong Custer and his men against the Sioux and Cheyenne warriors.
The Sioux and American government had been in conflict for many years. The Sioux nation was drastically cut in half due to the expansion of white settlers in the west. The main cause of the Battle of Little Bighorn was that the Sioux and
American government were having conflicts over land ownership.
The Battle of Little Bighorn was the most successful battle the Sioux Indians had ever endured. The Sioux defeated the number one best cavalry in the United States Army. It was the largest gathering of Native American warriors of all time. General George Custer, the Lieutenant of the American cavalry, became famous. He became known as a hero for fighting and going down with his men at the Battle of Little Bighorn.
General Armstrong Custer
General George Custer made himself known through his battles in the Civil War. Although he got into trouble often, he made up for it with his fighting skills. He started a gold rush which ultimately caused trouble between Native Americans and white miners. Once the government said they wanted all Indians to live in reservations, the battle had begun.
