Indian Memorial to Battle of Little Big Horn

After the Battle of Little Big Horn the fallen U.S. soldiers were memorialized with white granite headstones where they fell, and even their horses were recognized with a marker. It took nearly 150 years until the Native Americans who died fighting were memorialized. Red granite headstones dot the landscape, marking the place they died during the Battle of Little Big Horn.

[Vicki Stevison, 07/03/2015]

The first red granite headstones were placed on Memorial Day, 1999 (The white headstones were placed in 1890). The Indian Memorial was dedicated June 25, 2003.

Graves of the 7th Cavalry.
