Sitting Bull's pictograph of the vision that he had of soldiers falling into the Indian camp upside down that he had during the Sun Dance. This is at Deer Medicine Rocks.

On this day in 1839, George Armstrong Custer was born in Harrison County, Ohio. Although he is best known for his demise at the hands of the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Montana, Custer built a reputation as a dashing and effective cavalry leader during the American Civil War.

Palo Duro Canyon in Texas; the edge of the Llano Estacado. Where a far better colonel and regiment, Ranald Mackenzie and the 4th Cavalry, broke the hostiles of the southern plains---Comanche, Kiowa and Southern Cheyenne. And with remarkably little loss of life on either side.

Mackenzie had an outstanding record during the Rebellion and Grant considered him one of the most promising young officers in the army.
