Little Bighorn Battlefield

After the brief encounter near the river, Custer's two companies retreat up the ravine to your right known as Deep Coulee. The remainder of Custer's command skirmishes with warriors on the high ridge ½ mile to your right. Seizing the initiative, Crow King, Gall, and Two Moons lead warriors in pursuit of the retreating soldiers. "While Custer's firing at the cut bank was in progress, I saw no large body of Indians fording, but as soon as we began to retreat they must have swarmed across both above and below us, for we had not proceeded one-third of the way to the ridge before the Sioux were thick upon both our left and right flanks firing into us heavily."
- - - Curley, Crow Scout.
"The Indians rode in many small parties streaming northeast up the ravine toward the troops. "
- - - White Bull, Minneconjou Lakota
"Before fight started, we drove him (Custer) up a slope to a ridge and over to other side of it. Soldiers (were) mounted all (time) and kept going right along."
- - - He Dog, Oglala Lakota.
