Epic landmarks in American history lie everywhere close to the interstate highway system. One of these is Custer Battlefield National Monument. Marking the site where Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the 250 troopers of his 7th Cavalry were defeated by the Indians in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Custer Battlefield is within sight of Interstate 90, a few miles from here in southeastern Montana. It was 110 years ago that Custer and his men made their legendary Last Stand.
