Little Bighorn Battlefield

After separate skirmishing, Custer's command reunites here. Company L, under Lt. James Calhoun, skirmishes with Gall, Crow King, Two Moons, and other warriors.From here these soldiers could have attracted Capt. Benteen's column and the pack train. A Lakota and Cheyenne charge overruns this hilltop and stampedes cavalry horses held in the ravine to your left. "The first stand was probably made by Lts. Calhoun and Crittenden . . . . the men and their empty cartridge shells were found in a semi circle around the crest. Calhoun and Crittenden were killed here. Along the ravine and up the side hill to (Custer Hill) was a line of dead men and horses."
- - - Lt. Edward Maguire, Corps of engineers (Montana Column).
"The smoke was like a great cloud, and everywhere the Sioux went, the dust rose like smoke. We circled all around them . . . swirling like water around a stone. "
- - - Two Moons, Northern Cheyenne.
