Little Bighorn Battlefield
A few years ago, Barbara learned that one of her great-grandfathers was buried in the Custer National Cemetery within the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. He was a civil war veteran and Custer National Cemetery was the closest national cemetery to where he died. We decided to visit the National Monument to visit his grave and to see where Custer's last stand happened.
