Battle of Greasy Grass Creek 1876

June 25, 1876 became known as "Custer's Last Stand" because the U.S. Army needed support from Congress to expand their expeditions against the Plains tribes. The defeat happened only weeks before the United States would celebrate 100 years of Independence from England. "Manifest Destiny" had blinded white Americans from seeing the need for Natives to be independent also.

Congress increased the size of the U.S. Army, and these new forces were sent against the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho...and other tribes...


June 25, 1876 from the Native point of view:
