The battle of Little Bighorn has captured the American imagination in part because so little is known about the bloody clash that resulted in the death of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer. Like their leader, every member of the 7th United States Cavalry that participated in Custer's Last Stand perished while battling Sioux and Cheyenne warriors on the afternoon of June 25, 1876. Where Custer Fell tells the story of that day by presenting rare manuscripts, maps of the battlefield, and contemporary photographs that show Little Big Horn as it was more than a century ago.
