The Little Bighorn Battlefield, also known as Custer's Last Stand, is a historic site located in Montana, United States

On June 25-26, 1876, it was the site of a battle between the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry Regiment, led by Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer

The conflict was a result of tensions between the U.S. government and Native American tribes over land, resources, and cultural differences

 The tribes had refused to move to reservations and were determined to protect their ancestral lands

Custer's regiment, consisting of around 700 soldiers, was ordered to attack the Native American encampment

 However, they were greatly outnumbered by the approximately 2,500 warriors, who were led by Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse

The battle became one of the most famous and controversial conflicts in U.S. history, and its legacy is still debated today

The site was designated as a national monument in 1946 and later became a national battlefield in 1991

 It is now a popular tourist attraction and is visited by thousands of people each year
