General Custer Last stand , the Little Big Horn in Montana

     While on our rushed trip back to Pennsylvania we stopped at an RV Park just about 4-5 miles from the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Being true tourist at heart even though we were tired from a long day of travel we decided to visit the site. We quickly set up the RV and took off for the Battlefield.  We had about 2 hours before the visitors center closed, but the grounds were open for about 6 or 7 hours more. So we first went to the visitors center and saw the film  and procured   information on the driving tour and a short hike. We just decided to do the driving tour as we were both tired from todays drive. We found the information to be quite good and did get out at many of the different overlooks. We didn't spend as much time at a site like this as we usually do, but did appreciate the effort the National Park service went through to preserve this bit of history.
