      For me as a Canadian, who didn’t learn much about the Battle of the Little Bighorn, General Custer, or really any U. S.

      history, I was very eager to visit the Custer’s Last Stand Reenactment Site near Hardin, Montana.

      I was traveling across the northern U.

      S.

      States and insisted to my travel companion that we stop here.

      It was early April, so it was off-season and therefore


      there were no reenactment ’shows’, but the site, which included many miles of rolling hills, and a museum, was open.

      First, I went to the museum to get an idea of the chronology of the dramatic and nation-changing event.

      Afterward, we were allowed to wander about the site, driving and walking, which I would recommend as the territory to cover is vast.

      The paths are clearly marked ...


      • with historical markers, which tell the story of Custer, his Native scouts and the soldiers.

        Reading the story is one thing; then, being able to walk on the land where the battle actually took place, made it very real, and for a history buff like me, a great experience.

        The grave markers are indeed sobering, when you realize just how many died here on these plains.

        I can think of no better teaching tool than this site, and for anyone interested in history, or to teach children a very important chapter in North American history, this is a must-see.

        The rolling hills and endless sky of Montana is also a gorgeous setting, and at $20 a ticket for adults and $8 for children, it is a non-expensive history lesson as well as an interesting outing.
