STUBBORN Custer was a di cult man, and there are a number of reasons for his defeat at the hands of Native Americans at the Battle of Little Bighorn


I greatly appreciate your fine and accurate American history coverage. I was enthralled by the article on Little Bighorn (Battlefield, October 2016) – the largest battle loss and defeat that the US Army suffered during the wars against Native Americans, specifically the Lakota and Cheyenne in June 1876. The fight cost Custer his life, plus those of his entire 1st Battalion, and many from the 2nd and 3rd Battalions of the 7th US Cavalry Regiment.

“It was not a question of whether Custer would be defeated, but when”

Here are a couple more details of interest that supplement your article. Firstly, Custer ignored the intelligence on the huge numbers of enemy warriors that his small regiment would face, which was provided by his Native American scouts. Additionally, the battle was fought on Crow land that the Lakota and Cheyenne had taken from their Crow enemies in tribal warfare.
