The road to defeat
After their resounding victory, the warriors, women and children, all return to their village. Despite their triumph over Lieutenant Colonel George A Custer’s 7th Cavalry at the Little Bighorn, the most famous battle of the Great Sioux War, the Native Americans cannot prevail against the growing strength of the US Army. Within a year, the tribes of the Northern Plains are forced to capitulate and subsequently settle on reservations.
