    Battle of the Little Big Horn

    The background behind this infamous battle, also known as “Custer’s Last Stand,” comprises an effort to subdue Native Americans living in the Dakota and Montana territories who were fighting for their nomadic way of life. Discovery of gold in the nearby Black Hills in 1874, triggered an influx of white prospectors into Native American territory and led to assaults on the prospectors by the Sioux (Lakota), under Chief Sitting Bull, Chief Crazy Horse, and Chief Gall.
