SMHS Meeting - Custer's Last Stand

18 May 2011

Returning speaker Norman Franks took SMHS members through the Battle of Little Bighorn. Whilst there are many accounts of this famous battle from the Great Sioux War of 1876, members were given a detailed overview from all sides. The film industry has, over the years, played a major role in perhaps clouding what really happened in an effort to ensure an everlasting American legacy.

In 1991 Little Bighorn Battlefield became a national monument that respects all who perished during the battle.
