Absolutely amazing. Just by walking through this battlefield you can feel the history and emotion of what happened here. You really start to feel and understand what birth sides were fighting for. Up the hill where Custer's Last Stand took place there are makers for where the bodies of Custer and his troops were found as well as a monument and mass grave if those who perished. You can imagine what it must have been like for them defending the hill while they had to have known they likely wouldn't survive. Nearby is a memorial to the Natives who fought in the battle. Along its walls is the story of those who fought for their lands and their way if life. This place is truly a must-visit.
Travelled from Ireland specifically to visit. Very moved by this historic battlefield site. However with no Indian guided bus tour available along with an uncharacteristic lack of enthusiasm by Park Rangers, and with battlefield self guided CD's out of stock, (surely an unforgivable offence!) meant the trip of a lifetime was less than it should have been. Management should concern themselves less with parking arrangements and more with getting their house in order. They should be sent to Gettysburg to see how much more they could do to enhance the visitor experience.
A amazing place to learn about American history. The National Cemetery is gorgeous and extremely well kept. This National Historic Site is a incredibly sacred place so please respect it with all your heart. Your kids will enjoy the walking, the views are gorgeous and truly understanding what happened is heartbreaking
So much history, took bus tour and the guide helped tell the story very well. I recommend the bus tour! But I've heard the story many times, but I never felt it until standing on that sacred land. Seeing the markers where many died, gave me a better sense of how big it was. I was amazed at the steepness of last stand hill. Enjoyed the visitors center, and visiting the Custer National Cemetery. Wish I lived closer and could visit it more!
Everything that leaned toward "by the way, the Natives were just protecting their homeland" has been added either by the tribes themselves or shoddily after the fact (literally, the equivalent of post-it notes taped to the timeline that say "oh, and this is when the US massacred a village"). What happened to Custer and his men was terrible, but that we took this land in the middle of a reservation and dedicated it to the men rounding them up is as tone deaf as US-Native relations have ever been. You have to walk further, down into the Native memorial to even know what it is. There are a few red markers (how many??) for fallen natives, but nothing compared to the 249 (exactly, said over and over in documentation) for Custer's men. Custer's horse cemetery has a nicer marker than the placard that talks about a Native being shot in the head. The place claims to be about "unity," but it has a long way to go. It was apparently "Custer National Monument" until 1991, but it still feels that way 25 years later.
