This summer, I was at The Little Big Horn. If you have ever been through Montana, you know how wide open the state is, just like west Texas..
When we were there, we took the bus tour of the battle ground. It was very educational.
At the Big Horn, there are markers where the soldiers fell. These markers are scattered through out the battle ground.
The young lady who was the commentator or tour guide did a great job of telling the story of the battle.
The tour was both educational and funny. Certainly, no battle is funny, but at one point in the tour, the bus stopped and the tour guide was pointing out an area of interest. She began to tell us about two officers that were moving troops and she forgot the name of one of the officers. She said, Benteen and, .... ah, .... ah, ..... ah, ..... well, that other guy ......
That was so funny, everybody on that bus just exploded with laughter.
The land of the battle ground and the land surrounding the battle ground, is now divided and fenced off . So there are fence rows on the battle ground.
The tour guide told us a story of little old White lady that took the tour one day.
On the battle field, there is a group of about five white marble markers, marking a spot where five soldiers had fallen. The markers were not very far from a fence. As the tour guide was telling the story of the battle that day, the little old White woman said, "that one other there would have gotten away if it wasn't for that fence."
