    Title General Custer at the battle of the Little Big Horn, J Contributor Names Custer, Elizabeth Bacon, Little Bighorn and Custer are names synonymous in the American imagination with unmatched bravery and spectacular defeat. Mythologized as Custer's Last Stand, the June battle has been equated with other famous last stands, from the Spartans' defeat at Thermopylae to Davy Crockett at the Alamo.

      The first one is probably the most obvious to many people: his miscalculation at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Famously known also as “Custer’s Last Stand,” the Battle of Little Bighorn was, unfortunately, one of the defining moments in Custer’s military career – mainly because that was the point at which it had ended.   HoWhen the small force led by General George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn was completely decimated by a surprise attack led by a combination of Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Native Americans, it was a miracle anyone on the side of the U.S. Army made it away from the battlefield still breathing.

      Connell read dozens of books about Custer and the Indian campaigns, corresponded with the Little Bighorn experts John M. Carroll and Charles K. Mills, and contacted libraries and historical. mass suicide during the Battle of the Little Bighorn caused massive numbers of casualties suffered by General Custer and the 7th Cavalry (Marquis ; Stephens ; Braswell and Kushner ). The Battle of the Little Bighorn resulted in mass casualties of U.S. 7th Cavalrymen during the Indian Wars of the : Genevieve M Mielke.
