The Great Sioux War, 1876-77: the best from Montana, the magazine of western history
Montana Historical Society Press ;
It was the greatest of all Indian wars and it involved far more than the annihilation of George Armstrong Custer's command on a summer's day in 1876. The Great Sioux War of 1876-77 was a confrontation of two flowering cultures. It involved not one, but more than a dozen battles, played out over the vast landscape of the northern plains. The stakes were high - gold in the Black Hills, rights to the great Yellowstone Basin, and two ways of life. For the Sioux and Cheyenne peoples it was, as Black Elk later put it, all our own country, and they defended it fiercely against the army columns of Gibbon, Crook, Terry, Miles and Custer and against the railroads, town builders, cattlemen, and gold seekers.
