HOW THE LAST STAND LOOKED LIKE
Here is one of the most accurate portrayal of the Last Stand ever (taken from "The Custer Album")
42 men behind 39 dead horses, in a 30-feet circle.
"Custer's men were along a ridgeline, and they were either running along it or trying to control it. But those men shot their horses and made a barricade. The highest number of casualties happened right there,"
says Paul Hutton, a professor of history at the University of New Mexico and a Custer scholar.
