Witness Bvt. Major General Armstrong Custer, played by Steve Alexander (recognized by Congress to be today's foremost Custer Historian), and the 7th US Cavalry Troopers come out of the Medicine Tail Coulee and clash with authentic Indian Braves as they both cross the Little Bighorn River, showcasing their great riding ability, to recreate that famous day of June 25th, 1876.

Experience with all your senses this epic battle of 600 7th US Cavalry and over 1,800 Warriors of Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapahoe Indian Nations.  The Battle of the Little Bighorn Reenactment started almost twenty years ago, to share more of the Native American story of the Indian Wars and to have the reenactment on the ground where the teepees of the Indian Village were located, between Custer's Last Stand Hill and Reno-Benteen Battlefield.

This battle has been called Custer's Last Stand for over a century, with the National Park service renaming of the Battlefield monument and park to Little Bighorn Battlefield, "Battle of the Little Bighorn" has become more prominent.
