Headstones at The Little Big Horn Battlefield
During my July 2008 visit to The Little Big Horn Battlefield I photographed every headstone or marker where a man fell, regardless of which side he was on. Each side had so many men who gave their lives for their cause, I wanted to make sure I honored each one and neglected none. I don't have room here to display them all unfortunately. I was also torn about placing the Indian Warriors, US Army Indian Scouts, and US 7th Cavalry Troopers on separate pages. I decided to put them all together. Their valor and sacrifices were shared on the same battlefield so I finally settled on displaying them here together. At the time of my visit very few Indian markers had been placed. All of them are shown on these pages.
As you observe these photos please be respectful to both sides regardless of your feelings on the battle. Each side should be honored for the bravery. Try to remember these were different times with different values.
