The winners, so goes the saying, write history. Such was not the case for the Lakota and Cheyenne alliance that defeated Gen. George Armstrong Custer and 262 soldiers of the 7th Cavalry on June 25, 1876. Previously, scholars have discounted Indian's testimony regarding their victory at the battle of Little Big Horn for numerous reasons. This story, however, is told from the vantage point of the two warring tribes and makes use of first hand accounts from key participants such as Crazy Horse, Two Moons, and Crow King.
