My 1981 Visit To The Battle Of Greasy Grass Creek

The above image is, Abandoned Aggression

Today's song is Mr. Custer by Larry Verne, released in 1960.

In early July 1981, I took my wife and four-year old daughter on a three and-a-half week camping trip out from Chicago through many western states. One of the important destinations was where the historic, Battle Of Greasy Grass Creek took place on this day in 1876. We arrived there on July 3, 1981.

Here are some of the pictures I took there at the time:

In the last 29 years I read many books about that battle and visited several other sites where cultures clashed over land and different ways of life. This place is one of the most famous because the news from it arrived in the East on July 4, 1876. The outcome put pressure on the United States government to put the Native American issues to rest once and for all. It is another example of using power to take possession in violation of signed treaties.

I can clearly recall my visit that hot summer July day. The National Park Rangers spoke about the battle, bringing it to life. I have some cassette tapes of their presentations here in my home.

If you ever have the chance to go there perhaps you will feel something in the air, as I did. I mentioned the sensation back at the campground that night and was told people often sense something special there. It is experiences like that which make memories all the more clearer.
