Synopis: Historians are at once captivated and bedeviled by the Great Sioux War of 1876-77, the Indian war which George Armstrong Custer was killed. In its nearly two-year-long course, this grueling conflict pitted almost one third of the U.S. Army against Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyennes over issues such as access to the new goldfields of the Black Hills, construction of the northern transcontinental railroad, and fundamental treaty rights that ran counter to any manner of white settlement of the northern plains. Before it ended, the war had played out on twenty-seven different battlefields scattered across a five-state region, cost hundreds of killed and wounded and millions of dollars, and had immediate and lingering transformative impacts on the landscape and on surveyors on both sides.
