Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument
The Crow Indian
Reservation is located 15 miles outside Hardin, Montana, the place
where the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument was erected
as a memorial to evoke the last armed efforts of the Northern Plains
Indians tribes to preserve this territory and their way of life.
In June 1876, this place was the scene
of a bloody battle, which took place between the Sioux Indians
directed by Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse and 263 cavalrymen
commanded by General George Armstrong Custer. Created after the
American Civil War, Custer’s 7th Cavalry of the United States Army
was a veteran organization, determined to defeat the Indian tribes.
This armed engagement was known as the
Battle of the Little Bighorn. Even though it would eventually be
called the Battle of the Greasy Grass, Custer's Last Stand and
Custer Massacre after the Sioux killed all the soldiers, including
General Custer, with the aid of thousands of Cheyenne and Lakota
Today, the Little Bighorn Battlefield
National Monument, the Last Stand Hill and the Battlefield Cemetery
nearby are best known as a haunting area. At this place, local
workers and visitors have seen soldier ghosts in Reno Crossing, a
section of the battleground, which is a National Park nowadays.
After the battle, Andrew Grover was
designated superintendent of Custer Battlefield, living his in a
tent, but later building the Stone House to move in with his family
and caring for the cemetery. Numerous apparitions have made this
house the most haunted spot in the area.
However, the most impacting apparition
is the ghost of General Custer, who seems to be wandering from the
battlefield area to the actual museum exhibit, checking his premises
late at night.
In 1986, a group of psychics was invited to make channeling and
psychometric works in this region using relics that confirmed
intangible manifestations. Incidentally, Custer's ghost has also
been seen periodically at Fort Riley, in Kansas, where he lived with
his wife Libby between 1866 and 1867.
