After 145 years the mystery and tragedy of Custer's Last Stand still remains. Join us as we explore the landscapes of Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument through photographs. We will explore the same ravines and coulees upon which the 7th U.S. Cavalry fought against the mighty Lakota and Cheyenne nations as they defended their way of life. Transcending our exploration, some of those mysteries will unravel in all their hubris.
Our presenter is Bob Reece who has photographed the Little Bighorn Battlefield for more than 30 years. He has walked in its shadows of deep ravines where the vast majority of the public never gets to venture. Off-season he can be found at the battlefield telling the story of what happened on the site June 25-26, 1876 to the visiting public. He has volunteered on several archaeological surveys, and knows the excitement that comes when uncovering a battle relic last seen through dust, gunfire, and smoke amidst the screams of the wounded and dying.
Reece's photographs of this battlefield have appeared in the magazines Time, Wild West, True West, and American Heritage. In addition, his photos have graced the covers and inside of books.And now, Mr. Reece will lead you on the journey of mystery and tragedy that is Custer's Last Stand through his photography. When you leave his presentation, you will feel like you have walked upon this battlefield.
