Take a Stand with videos and articles on Custer's Last Stand.
New videos: "Custer's Last Prayer" and the "Reno Court of Inquiry", along with other Custer stuffs, testimonies on the Little Big Horn etc.
Visit also the French part of the website for extensive Custer paintings and pictures. A whole 2007 movie on Custer's Last Stand by the BBC is also available.
Deja vu all over again?...........
It’s the name of a movie not that bad, actually. I posted the videos, not the website, and there are testimonies and articles on the subject.
Custer is a sickness, sorry, it’s hard to give up
and it means... ?
The Home Team won.........
bTW, have you seen the BBC movie on Custer’s Last Stand? It’s all on the website if you want. It’s a 2007 movie with English actor Toby Stephens.
It means: In Before The Zot!............He believes this post will be ZOTTED by the AD MODS......
No home, just teepees. Nomads.
I can't wait to see you explain this one...
Too bad. It’s just your history.
I read the spread in National Geographic a few years abck and the Discovery Channel (?) special on it. Plus there was a true forensic investigation (Smithsonian?) that followed the soldiers’ and armed Lakota positions, via shell casings’ markings. They concluded that from the start to finish of “The Battle” probably didn’t take more than 30 minutes.........
| It's all the sugar.
It changes your thinking and
makes you addicted.
Custer, if he had lived, would probably been court martialed.............
It’s called “custerïte”, and Robert Utley, in his latest book “An Historian Memoir”, explains how the sickness can spread anywhere, from Japan to the USA, because of Custer’s outstanding story.
No wonder the Indians won!.......
Too bad, because the latest National Park Service researchs found that 200 Indians were killed on the battlefield alone.
The battle, according to recent studies, lasted from 2 to 4 hours.
Wasn't the first time or the biggest.
...Washington was accustomed to adversity, and after Harmar resigned in March, 1791, he commissioned Arthur St. Clair a major general and commander of the American forces in Ohio with specific instructions to be careful of "surprise." St. Clair, however, was disliked in Kentucky and had trouble recruiting an army. He eventually assembled 2,000 militia at Fort Hamilton (just north of Cincinnati) and moved north in the fall. Despite Washington's warnings, St. Clair was surprised on November 4th near the future site of Fort Recovery, Ohio and almost overrun by Little Turtle's early morning assault of 1,200 warriors. The confused retreat degenerated into a complete rout with the soldiers abandoning their weapons and wounded. The alliance lost 56 warriors in the greatest Native American victory over an American army, while St. Clair lost over 600 killed and 400 wounded from a total force of 2,000. The mouths of the American dead were found later filled with dirt, the only piece of Ohio they would ever get.
