Little Bighorn Battlefield draws people from around the world

The Battle of the Little Bighorn is one of the most-studied skirmishes in the history of the United States behind Gettysburg, so it's no surprise people come from around the world to visit the site.

The Little Bighorn National Monument is the site of one of the most iconic battles in American history -- the June 25, 1876, clash between Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer's 7th Cavalry and a coalition of Indian tribes, most of them Cheyenne, Sioux and Arapaho, led by Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.
