Custer and the Sioux at the Little Bighorn 1876

ID : 585   
« back to classes page
A study of the Army's 1876 campaign against the non-reservation Sioux Indians of the Northern Plains. President Grant's administration decided to resolve the "Indian problem" by ordering a military campaign in the spring of 1876 intended to force the "hostiles" onto reservations. The result was the catastrophic defeat of the 7th Cavalry, George Armstrong Custer's death, and the end of the Indians' traditional way of life. Topics include Indian history on the Northern Plains, Indian allies, the 1876 campaign, Battles of the Rosebud and Little Bighorn, reservations, the Ghost Dance, and Wounded Knee.
