    1. I’m a Montana native transplanted to Minnesota. When I was 15 I went back to visit and we went to Little Bighorn. I felt chills and an overwhelming feeling we were NOT alone! We walked all over the grounds I remember feeling so sleepy and had chills even though it was a hot July day. I sat down leaning against a gravestone and dozed off. I don’t know if I was half awake but I heard the battle off in the distance and I saw warriors blooded and one of them looked right at me and fell at my feet wounded. I woke with a start with tears rolling down my face. Quite an experience. I felt such a kinship and such empathy for the Indians. being adopted it was many years later I found out I was a very small amount indian blood. Even now almost 45 years later I get chills thinking about that day.

    2. My Girlfriend and I were there a couple years ago. We parked near the souvenir shop and cemetery and walked around the cemetery. My girlfriend went to the car for a minute and came back telling me she saw an old man setting on a bench by the car and when she looked back a second later he was gone.

    3. The followers of Sitting bull were not the main stream Sioux, most of those went on reservatinos with Red Cloud, they were what we would today call religous fanatics, so on top of the horrors of a bloody battle, we can ad the victors’ strongly held religous views as adding to the ‘back ground count’ on the site.

      Local legend has had the place badly haunted long before anyone thought to put a national park sign on it. It was said that the local native americans said the local federal agent on the site was there to coral the ghosts.

    4. Having lived on the Crow Reservation as a child and spending countless hours there as an adult, I’m very familiar with the battlefield. It’s one of my favorite places to hike in that area. I never cease to be amazed by the tourists in flip-flops in front of rattlesnake warning signs. As sensitive to that area as I am in broad daylight, going through at night is an experience all its owns. Back in the day, one could go riding there at night. I’ve done ride-alongs with tribal police there. For some reason, a lot of people commit suicide there. So, they patrol it a lot, even in the off-season. There are a lot of strange lights and UFOs there and in a few certain areas near there. But, you haven’t lived until you’ve gone through there at night on horseback. That’s a federal offense now. But, when I was a kid, holy moly.
