756 Battlefield Tour Road
Crow Agency, Montana


Preserving the site of the Battle of Little Bighorn that took place on June 25 and 26, 1876, this national monument was established in 1879. The battle was the most significant action of the Great Sioux War of 1876 and resulted in the defeat of US forces. The Deep Ravine Trail leads visitors on a half-mile (.8-kilometer) roundtrip tour of the battlefield. Sights include Custer’s Last Stand Hill and Custer National Cemetery. A 4.5-mile (7-kilometer) road lead visitors to where the second stage of the battle took place, the Reno-Benteen Battlefield. Self-guided and guided tours are available at this venue in southeastern Montana along the Little Bighorn River. A visitors’ center provides a 25-minute orientation film as well as a museum displaying educational exhibits and a bookstore selling souvenirs.
