Custer in dire straits


Assailed from multiple directions, Custer’s cavalrymen are steadily pushed northward toward the slopes of a long ridgeline. Along with the assumption that the so-called ‘Custer’s Last Stand’ was a stationary engagement, there is also evidence to support a running battle between the opposing forces. A few miles from Reno’s position, Custer’s force is cornered on a hillside and annihilate­d. The end probably comes swiftly, in half an hour or less of desperate combat.
