While the battlefield site itself is intriguing, particularly due to the overall preservation of the site pretty much as is probably looked in 1876, the attitude and work ethic of the NPS employees ruined the experience for me. They "advertise" a film and a ranger presentation, but with a footnote that they may be cancelled basically for any or no... 更多
We encountered horrendous storms the day we visited the monument. But we still experienced enough of the venue to appreciate the historic significance of this site in our nation's history. This should be on everyone's bucket list.
We all truly loved seeing the battlefield. Be sure to see the brief movie before touring the battlefield. They have white markers placed where the soldiers fell during the battle.

We stopped in for a brief visit on our way to Devils Tower. Did not have too much time. We were fortunate enough to attend one of the Ranger Talks at the Grave Site. Ranger Steve Adelman (Retired 30 Yr Educator) did a 30 minute presentation that was the best Ranger talk that we have ever heard.....and that spans a... 更多
As a Canadian, I learned about about this event but really didn't know it's real significance for the area and what led to its place in American history and the results also led to a Canadian connection. What I found was I was able to get an interpretation by both white and native explanation of the events resulting in the... 更多
