Teresa Otto recently wrote an article for My Itchy Travel Feet about visiting Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Custer Battlefield Museum in Garryowen:
“I’ve lived in Montana most of my life. So when I discovered a Tomb of an Unknown U.S. Soldier in Garryowen, Montana on a recent road trip, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I’d seen the tombs in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia and in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. But one in Garryowen, just 65 miles from my home, who knew? The road trip started with a visit to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument 60 miles southeast of Billings, Montana. The site was called Custer Battlefield or Custer’s Last Stand until 1991 when President H. W. Bush renamed the battleground for its location on the Little Bighorn River.”
