Commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand, the battle was between the combined forces of the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes fighting 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army.
It was an overwhelming victory by the Indians, who were led by Crazy Horse and Chief Gall, and had been inspired by the visions of Sitting Bull.
Led by Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer twelve companies were annihilated and Custer was killed, as were two of his brothers, a nephew, and a brother-in-law.
