Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday-Wind” brought to mind our trip to Yellowstone. Driving through Montana one windy evening and just as twilight was falling, we arrived at the sight marking ‘Custer’s Last Stand’ at the battle of Little Bighorn which was fought in June 1876. Custer was leading the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry Unit of only 210 men, when they were confronted by thousands of fierce Sioux and Cheyenne warriors. The battle lasted for less than an hour, at the end of which, General Custer and all of his men lay dead.
It was eerie feeling standing there looking out over the windswept plain and imagining the ferocious fighting which had taken place there.
The black-faced gravestone marks the place where General Custer fell.
