On November 27, 1868, Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer led the 7th U.S. Cavalry on a surprise dawn attack on a Cheyenne village led by Peace Chief Black Kettle. The event was an example of the clash of cultures that occurred during the Great Plains Wars. It is also a place of remembrance and reflection for those who died here.
