Custer Lives!

Vistor Center At The Little Big Horn Battlefield

 

In July 2008 I finally got to see the Little Big Horn Battlefield in person and walk the awe inspiring grounds where a clash of governments forever changed the makeup of the American West. I began my tour at the Visitor Center and Custer Museum. The Center and Museum need an upgrade BADLY. The staff does the best they can with the hopelessly outdated facility but it's still severely lacking. Congress needs to stop building "bridges to nowhere" and fund the upgrades needed for one of the most important sites in the history of the United States of America and the Plains Indian Nations. The Park Rangers and Crow Indian ladies inside were all fabulous.

If you would like to use one the images on these pages please email me and I'll send you a high resolution large format copy instead of the lower quality images used here.

I also apologize for the flash that appears on the glass in some of the photos. The Center and Museum were crowded and I was constantly dodging other visitors.
