Battle of Little Bighorn
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Caption: An 1899 lithograph from the Werner Company of Akron, Ohio, entitled Custer Massacre at Big Horn, Montana - June 25, 1876.
 
2     Not all Indian tribes left their lands peacefully. Some of them chose to fight back against the settlers that they saw as invaders. One of the greatest victories for the Indians was at the Battle of Little Bighorn. The battle is also known as Custer's Last Stand.
 
3     In late 1875, some Sioux and Cheyenne Indians left the reservation they were living on. They were angry. White men had been looking for gold in the Black Hills. The Black Hills was very important to the tribes that lived near them. To the Indians, the Black Hills were sacred land.
 
4     The government did not want the Indians to leave the reservation. It wanted to protect the miners who were looking for gold. The government sent in the army to help the miners and to force the Indians back to the reservation.
