Chief Crazy Horse

On June 25 1876 the northern tribes, Cheyenne, the Sioux and the Arapaho, refused to leave their tribal land in the Black Hills and war broke out. Colonel Custer waited at the mouth of the little bighorn river when he saw chief sitting bull and grew impatient. He attacked from three sides with Major Reno, and Captain Benteen. Reno and Benteen immediatley retreated, overwhelmed by the massive amount of Native Americans. Custer ordered his men to kill their horses and hide behind the bodies. Crazy Horse led an attack thats took under an hour for the arrows to kill all the troops, including Custer. Though they lost this battle when reinforcements arrived two days later the Native Americans fled to reservations.

Battle vs MassacreI believe the Batlle of Little Big Horn was a massacre because the soldiers were violently slaughtered by the unfair amount of men on the Native Americans side.
