This is a great U.S. historical site. The battlefield is well maintained and the facility and rangers were very knowledgeable about all accounts of this battle. You have to stop here if you're in...

Interesting piece of American history in a somber location on the Crow reservation. It doesn't feel like the surrounding area has changed significantly from the time of the battle. Park rangers tell the story of the battle in great detail. We didn't spend nearly enough time touring the property where there are markers for fallen soldiers. We didn't get to do the auto tour which we need to do. There is also a memorial created by ancestors of the involved American Indian tribes. Visitors center is mostly the gift shop with the real story outside. Highly recommend a visit to the site of this battle which will remind you of a period of American history which it is difficult to be proud of. We will be back!
Words cannot express what my review would be all about! Visited in Aug. 2019 and I was very deeply touched by the massive, massive land and its history. Made me feel very humble and seeing it with my own 2 eyes literally silenced me! MUCH respect for the native indians - one cannot even start imagining what it must have been like... and still. And for what? Because of greed for land and gold. Extremely sad! Custer had it coming!! Many greetings from Belgium ❤️
