  • Great experience. Largest battle in the indian wars. Very interesting presentation.
  • The Rosebud Battlefield is one of the most overlooked of the 1876 campaign which culminated in the Battle of Little Bighorn, and Custer's defeat. Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse were here, and their 1500 warriors descended on General Crook's 1500 troops, and soundly stopped that column from the 3 pronged column sent to defeat the Lakota and Cheyenne. Today, it is a solemn, unvisited, yet very poignant place where Native Americans sought to defend their way of life, and their people and the land on which all depends. There is a modest fee to enter, and you are your honor to pay it, and respect the place, to keep quiet, reflect, and do no harm to this place. Hike the trail rather than drive. This is a place of deep nature, deep spirit, and deep culture and history.
