Little Big Horn Battlefield National Monument in Montana

Pictures and text by Sean Bonny

This memorial is the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument that is located in the state of Montana off of Interstate 90 at Crow Agency Indian Reservation. It is also directly on the site of the June 25, 1876 battle between the U.S. Army's 7th cavalry and the Indian bands of the Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho. The pictures were taken in on August 11, 2008 and this memorial commemorates the Little Bighorn Battle.
