Wisherd VETERANS OF INDIAN WARS PLANT A MARKER ON RENO HILL, MONTANA In the long, grim finish fight between whites and reds, no greater tragedy was ever staged than Custer's Last Stand. The years cannot wipe out memories of that fatal day in June, 1876, when fighting Sioux on the Little Big Horn slew Custer's command to the last man. © L. A. Huffman IN THE WILD AGE, THIS GRIM VETERAN PLAYED HIS NOISY PART Dragging their clumsy cannon over mountain, stream, and desert; scattering their bones from the Big Horn to Puget Sound, from the Bad Lands down to Death Valley, the fighting pioneers held their stubborn way when the West was young. This is a Fort Stevenson relic.
