Custer's Last Stand Reenactment

Montana is a young state whose history lives quietly at buffalo jumps, in pictograph caves, weathered ghost towns, humble missions, magnificent turn-of-the-century mansions, and its and historic battlefields. The annual Custer's Last Stand Reenactment takes place at the Little Bighorn Battlefield and involves more than 300 actors, a production crew, and horses gathered each year to recreate Montana history. Many of the actors are direct descendants of people who participated in the battle as warriors or Crow scouts who rode with Custer.
