The Cultural Experience Custer tour explores the conflict between white settlers and Native Americans in the ‘Old West’, conducted beneath ‘Big Sky’ country in Montana and the Black Hills of Dakota.
Battle of Little Bighorn
On 25 June 1876 the US army lost one percent of its authorised strength in a single battle against Plains Indians at the Little Bighorn. Red Sabbath authoritatively blends contemporary Indian and soldier accounts with the most recent archaeological and forensic facts. Robert Kershaw has recreated the ‘feel’ of the battle, a series of dispersed and chaotic company actions, which the Indians overcame piece-meal. The book is a fresh approach to a battle that has long defied definitive conclusions.
