General George Armstrong Custer is one of the most well known, and highly researched, Civil War Generals. He graduated in last place at West Point and his death at the Little Big Horns in 1876, commonly called “Custer’s Last Stand”, made him a legend.
His travels through the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1874 and his encampment at the Fort Meade has been thoroughly researched.
The map of his trail through the Black Hills confirms that his troop traveled across this property in 1874, now defined as area 20, as seen on the enclosed map. This is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity of owning a piece of American history.
Multiple relics have been picked up along the creek bed over the years.
