Well here's a couple of pictures from The Little Big Horn memorial site

This battlefield is hallowed ground. Anyone with any sensitivity at all can feel the spiritual presence here. You can't help but tread quietly and speak in hushed tones.


Just a few of the many many crosses marking where fallen solders fell

This memorial is to the native Indians killed during the battle.

You're so right, Keays.  The battlefield exudes and almost demands quiet and respect.  I've visited several times, and every time that reverence is there.  It's almost spooky even.

Thanks for all the piccies.  It's been wonderful revisiting so many places vicariously through your travels.

I felt it too when I visited in 1989 - there is a special feeling to the place. I remember the memorial for the horses. I am touched by the memorial for the horses.
What a beautiful memorial for the Native Americans - in the style of 19th century pictographs and ledger paintings.
Did you also visit the trading post close by? I loved some of the t-shirts they sold, e.g. "Custer got Siouxed".

It's very unusual, but all the more memorable and effective for that.

Yes, we visited the trading post and had lunch there.  It's always interesting to brows through those places and you can sometimes find great books that you can't get anywhere else.  I always come home from a road trip with loads of books.  I figure it's better than buying silly trinkets!  But yes, some of the t-shirts are neat.

Glad to hear you are the same as me about books. When I traveled home in 1992 (after 3 months archaeology and 2 weeks spent between South Dakota and Montana) I had 3 pieces of luggage. One was a bag filled mostly with books (the rest was lumps of obsidian for flintknapping). I could barely lift the bag on a baggage trolley. And that was my hand luggage...
