What was the result of the Battle of Little Bighorn and "Custer's Last Stand:? by cherry05 Q: A. Better reservation lands were set aside for the Native Americans in order to help them better assimilate into white society. B. The Native Americans wiped out the American troops here and it showed the American army that the Native Americans could put up a fight. C. It became apparent that the creation of a Department of Indian Affairs was necessary in order for the Native Americans to be represented in government. D. Most Native Americans were slaughtered by the American troops because of the superior weapons that the Americans used.

A: Custer got Sioux'd.....thats actually a bumper sticker here in South Dakota. Hecetuwelo.

Durring the Battle of Big Horn, did General Gerorge Armstrong Custer Make it to the river? by ps2 guy Q: School progect due this upcoming thrusday and this is the last piece of info i need My teacher said that there was a little indian boy that said he saw a man that fit custers discription but fno one really knows

A: No he did not. He split his forces and lead his companies up the ridgeline to what is now "Last Stand Hill". Custer was most likely one of the first killed. Some of his troops did try to withdraw through the brush to the river (trying to reach Benteen's forces probably). They were all cut down by Indians waiting for just such an eventuality. His remains were ID'd on the hill after the battle. EDIT: No we DO really know, and that story should be taken for just what it is-a story. None of the indians really knew what Custer looked like, nor would they have cared if they did. He died on Last Stand Hill, his remains were ID'd by the burial party.

How many Indians died during Custer's Last Stand? by Ronald B Q: Custer's troop numbered 200+ killed. How many indians were killed during this battle?

A: Sitting Bull and Red Cloud estimated the deaths at about 138. The battle was considered by historians to be a quick over running of Custer by a force that was at least 3 to 1 and perhaps 5 to 1. It was swift and not as you see it in the movies.

Help finding/purchasing a rare atari game: Custer's Revenge? by avelectrician Q: I collect vintage video games, and have had problems finding a place online to buy this one given its controversial nature. It was originally released in 1982 by Mystique. If anyone knows of a link to a hobby shop or auction listing of this item, it would be greatly appreciated. I've looked around a lot. Some alternate titles are: Westward Ho or The White Man Came.

A: Here's somewhere you can play it online http://www.atariguide.com/3/320.php Besides that I think you'll be hard pressed to find that game, it's a famous one that most game collectors are after. Just keep checking ebay and maybe someday one will pop up. Good luck!

Would General Custer at "Little Big Horn" had his troubles if he would have had a newer horse? by Q: I say no, it would have a "check en-jun light". Now this is not "racist" it is funny and you know it, but everything now is racist, unless it bashes Whites.

A: Lmfaooo good one. And yea I agree, political correctness is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean end. And yea, the Native Americans had faster shooting guns.

What Evidence shows that U.S soliders put up little defense at Custer hill? by Bullys P Q: A. Custer's failure to ask for reinforcements. B. eyewitness accounts by surviving U.S Soldiers C. location of the remains of Custer's Soldiers d. Lack of cartridges from goverment guns on the battlefield

A: I will not answer your question, but I will say this. The troopers that fought that day were overwhelmed by both faulty tactics and a numerous opponent. The pattern of where the bodies were found indicate that there was an attempt at withdrawal.

what war did general custer fight in? What battle did he die in? by none of ur bussinesss <3 Q: ok answer and ill give you 10 points! so it is an extra credit and i want to find it but i cant soo plz answer

A: He fought against the Indians. I guess you could call it the Indian Wars, although it was more of a protracted campaign after the Civil War to kill or displace as many Native Americans as possible. He died in the battle of little big horn. Are you serious you couldn't find that out about Custer? I'm just wondering if you know how to use a search engine. And as for the comment above, it was certainly not the war of 1812 that is a good 70 years before this.

What was the relationship between Custer and Sitting Bull before the Battle of Little Bighorn? by Q:

A: Siting Bull and the Lakotah never traveled farther south then Nebraska. Prior to the expedition to drive the free Peoples to the prisoner of war camps, reservations, custer had only made war on the Southern Nations. He became famous for slaughtering peaceful people on the southern plains. custer ws actually discharged from the service after going awol, only to be recalled for the Greasy Grass campaign. The two never met personally, though custers reputation of murdering innocent Peoples in peaceful camps pprecededhim throughout the Free First Nations Peoples..

Why did General Custer lose at the Little Big Horn? by stonehudson2002 Q: Did Beenten and Reno let him down. Were the Indians just better raw fighters.

A: Check out the link - lots of good in depth information. http://www.lakotawritings.com/Little_Bighorn001.htm

In your opinion do you think General Custer could have been President had he not been killed? by Q: You have to admit thought back then it was not really about how smart you were but how hard you worked. Let me add that I do not wish he had become President by any means whatsoever I was simply asking the people what they think.

A: no they knew he was an idiot, that is why he was sent so far out west

Why were Custer's men mutilated after the Little Big Horn battle? by Q: I'm reading that after the battle most of the bodies were mutilated by the Indians, and in particular the genitals were targeted. Apart from the obvious fact that they must have been pretty pissed off by these soldiers hunting them down and all, I'm thinking maybe they was some supernatural purpose? Thanks

A: It is common among primitive tribes to take trophys, as it is believed that the bravery of slain is spiritually present in these trophys - and having them in one's tepee, or wearing them into battle adds their strength to yours -

Is there somewhere i can find a list of names on the Custer Monument? by Tim T Q: There is a Twilight Zone episode called "The 7th is Made up of Phantoms" I was looking for pictures of the actual monument to see the names, but I can only find pics from one side.

Was Gen. Custer dead and his body just brought to the battle of little bighorn? by betterthanyouall Q: I heard this myth from Gen. Crook's great great great grand nephew, when I was out antelope hunting this past weekend in Camp Crook, South Dakota. Neat guy, very talkative and said lots of stuff that isn't in any history books. l also heard Gen. Crook was trout fishing so he didn't help Custers regiment fight.

My Wife And I Play Custer And Indians In The Bedroom. Is It Racist? by Q: We're both white. She dresses up as a scantily clad Indian and I dress up like General Custer. I tie her to the bed and ravish her, calling her dirty names and we both love it! But lately she's been watching MSNBC and feels it's not politically correct and borderline racist. Should I consider her feelings or just take pocahantas into the teepee and give it to her?

what's the name of that new touch screen camera from that ashton custer commercial? by so_real_n_beautiful09 Q: well the commercial isn't that new any more..but the camara looks so cool.

A: Its the new Nikon! I have a older Nikon...its a Good Camera but I do have to say that it takes forever for the camera to snap the picture...if you have Kids you might want to look into a Sony or something! I just got a Sony Cyber-Shot tonight and it snaps the pictures instantly...its a night and day difference when it comes to taking the actual picture! If you want a touchscreen camera do all your research on all of them an try them out at your local stores like Best Buy or Curcuit City! ;) Good Luck on finding the camera for you! :)

Back in the 60's I saw a movie about a horse that was the only survivor of Custer's last stand? by [email protected] Q: I can not remember the name but would like to have my children see it.

A: Tonka (1958) starring Sal Mineo, Philip Carey, Britt Lomond (as General George Armstrong Custer), John War Eagle (as Chief Sitting Bull), Jerome Courtland, Rafael Campos, H.M. Wynant, Joy Page, Slim Pickens IMDb synopsis: Dakota Territory in the 1870s: White Bull, a young Sioux, proves his manhood by catching and training a wild colt he names Tonka. When a cruel cousin claims the horse as the privilege of rank, White Bull lets Tonka go. The horse ends up in the hands of a captain in the U.S. Cavalry about the time that Sitting Bull gathers the tribes to confront the growing U.S. presence, epitomized by General Custer. All paths, including those of White Bull and Tonka, lead to the confluence of the Little and Big Horn rivers. I saw this in the theater when I was a little girl then again a number of times on television. Actually, I might have videotaped this when it showed up on a cable channel, especially because I am a fan of Sal Mineo and Rafael Campos.

Are there a lot of mosquitos in Custer State Park area of SD? by bette Q: Hi, I'm planning a family road-trip for this summer (we live in MI), and one of my children is allergic to mosquito bites.... I'm wondering if the mosquitos are bad in this area (we're staying for 4 nights), and if I should look into getting a screen tent. Any other info you have about the area/pointers/etc... would be appreciated also. Thanks.

A: I don't know but i would have a flea and tick collar on all animals you take with you as when i was there in the early 90's you couldn't walk on a trail without them all over you. GOOD luck and have a great trip.

Has anyone taken the hot air balloon ride in Custer State Park? by yoopergal Q: My husband and I are going to South Dakota the last week of September.

A: no its not worth the money aha the view isnt even all that good :P

Why is it when one goes to "Find A Grave" and looks up George Armstrong Custer one is not allowed to comment? by We won! 20 Jan 09 (Erudite) Q: Isn't Custer a hero in the United States?

A: Probably because they would get a billion comments because he is so controversial. As with many of our historical "heroes" (Andrew Jackson, Christopher Columbus, etc...), there is a dark side to his story and they probably wanted to avoid the arguments that allowing comments would surely facilitate. Looking in other places besides wikipedia is probably best to research why he is such a controversial figure. Try asking the opinion of the Lakota people (or as they were dubbed by Euro-christians, the Sioux). I won't go too far into my personal opinion, other than to say that I would be too tempted to post a nasty (factual) comment about ol' Custer myself!

How has Custer's Last Stand affected modern day America? by Q: I'm writing a report on how the Battle of the Little Bighorn affected modern america. I tried using the native americans on reservations as an idea, but my teacher said i should limit it to either the native americans or just the actual battle. So how did the actual battle of the little bighorn affect modern day america?

A: No sarcasm intended but modern America is affected just like I am. Every time you read a pundit's opinion on what happened it's different. Not my area of study however why can't everyone agree on what happened? Was Benteen drunk or was that Major Reno? Battlefield maps show Reno was not engaged so why did he retreat across the shallows? Did they conspire to trap Custer's troop or not come to his rescue? Were the heroics of Custer's troop in the end real? Or did they just lay down and die as the tribes later said? I still don't know what happened. sp

Why does the city of Monroe Michigan say they are proud of General Custer? by We won! 20 Jan 09 (Erudite) Q: When Indians in that town say they do not respect Custer the Indians are arrested.

A: Many places are proud of the people who grew up or were born there. Monroe was were Custer spent most of his boyhood life and where his wife was born. Monroe was named for President James Monroe who visited Michigan territory in 1817. While Custer was arogant and made a foolish and infamous battlefield blunder, parts of his military career showed him to be brave and agressive in battle. He was also known for preperation before battle. He was no worse than others who fought in the plains wars against the tribes. He took prisoners. So Custer is a famous Son of Monroe. An area of 90% white and 0.24% native american. Check the links for more information

What discovery brought Custer and his troops, as well as thousands of other whites, to invade the Black Hills? by michele Q: silver, uranium, liquor, or gold?

What did the sioux attack against Custer's troops at Little Big Horn Provide? by engieerbrains Q: What did the Sioux's attack against Custer's troops at Little Big Horn Provide? Provide in General...

A: What do you mean by saying the Lakotah attacked custer? The bastarrd custer attacked the Lakotah village not the other way around. You should read "The Vanishing Race" by Joseph K Dixon. This provides an accurate description of the battle from the surviving Absaroke scouts used by custer, as well as Lakotah warriors who fought there. The Lakotah, Cheyenne, and Arapaho were camped on UNCEEDED land. Meaning it was not yet claimed by amerika. They had every right to camp there, hunt there. If a racist moron attacked your family, would you not defend them with lethal force? For a fact, His Crazy Horse did not lead the Lakotah, Cheyenne, and Arapaho into the battle. The Vanguard of the warriors was led by the Cheyenne. They wanted revenge for the murder of their helpless ones at Washata and Sand Creek. Buffalo Bull that Sits, Sitting Bull, was the Lakotah Head man of the big village. He served as a spiritual advisor. The week before, during the Sun Dance, He sacrificed 100 pieces of flesh. His vision told him of the coming battle and the end results. custer was an egotistical moron who got what he deseerved. Any man who attacks a village that stretched for 7 miles, containing over 5000 warriors, with only 600 men is a moron by any standards. What did the Lakotah, Cheyenne, and Arapaho provide? They provided death to the troopers in custers group of men. When he divided his command into 3 groups, only major Benteen and major Reno's group survived the battle. Many of them did die, but some survived. Only those in custers group died to the last man. HANTA YO!!!!!!!!!

Does any one know anything about Voltage Regulator Instrument custer? wiring? by jeremiahberrys_girl_cedes Q: Ok my alternator is not charging my battery on my 1976 ford maverick. changed the alternator,the regulator and the wires that come from the two still not charging the better has been tested to its good. they said it may be Voltage Regulator Instrument custer harness? does any one know anything about this or know where i could get diagram showing me how to hook this up?

A: Yes I can get you that thru scanning the photo copied sheets from the Mitchell Manual,,, it will give you the printed copper circuit board sheet layout labeled with all the connections... I also can get you all the bumper to bumper diagrams for the car and the alternator/regulator testing verification info... although most starting charging system headahe problems can be traced out to simple things like battery terminal posts adn ends not being clean enough or cables being bad or having bad connections etc. BTW are you using the bolt on terminals by any chance that came in a 2 pack from the auto parts store that have the redd paint on one and black paint on the other??? If so that paint is plasticized and insulates against proper voltage tranfer... in 1995 I repaired a Ford Pick up in Nampa Idaho.... the Mexican owner had a Brand New Battery, New Starter, New Alternator, New Voltage Regulator & New Cables... & these New Terminals too... It would crank over but not start... I took the terminals off and looked where the wire sat solid paint... then I took them and save them for the customer... then got plain lead unpainted terminals and installed them... vehicle now started and also charged correctly... I charged him $12.00 parts and labor (our shop rate was $42 hr) He gladly paid it happy truck was fixed when I tried to tell him it was just those stupid painted terminals he called me a liar and left in a huff.. anyway email me if you need the stuff out of the Mitchell Walt

Why was Custer killed in the battle of little big horn? by Q: George Armstrong Custer, why was he killed in the battle of little big horn?

A: He wasn't used to fighting natives who (a) weren't old folks and kids and (b) who fought back.

How did the Custer flag recently sold get off the battlefield? by B Q: . Also, another question about that battle; did the Indians leave the scene quickly, or did they stay to torture any dying troops in traditional Indian ways?

A: Troops arrived at the site a very short time after the battle. I assume that the attackers were not interested in the flag and left it behind being mainly interested in weapons and ammunition.

How can I be like general Custer? by Matias D ripper Q: General Custer is my idol, I like the way he killed the many of this nations enemies. Besides he almost became a president. I want to be just like him when I grow up.

A: He was a f*cking moron. I would not pick him as a role model. He is the historical example of what NOT TO DO. I hope this is sarcasm. His results speak for themselves and he got alot of good soldiers killed. Custers last stand was just one of several screw ups with that one being his last.

Why did Colonel Custer go into battle in the battle of Little Bighorn? by Foxxgurl57 Q: I'm doing a Museum project in History for school, and I chose Battle of Little Bighorn. I have to have a conversation with a historical character and I chose Colonel Custer. WHy did he go into battle? How many men went into battle with him? What was the outcome?

A: He was probably one of America's most arrogant generals. He split a force that might have been able to defeat Sitting Bull in open combat, but made the smaller groups extremely vulnerable. He thought that by splitting the force he could easily find the enemy and put the groups together again to destroy it, but he was cut off after being ambushed, and probably drawn into a running battle, instead of the famed "last stand" everyone talks about.

Just curious as to what people think is the best biography of General Custer? by william w Q: I'm interested in reading a biography of George A. Custer. In browsing Amazon, I see that there's quite a few of them. I'd be interested to hear which one(s) readers think are the best.

A: If you go to the Library of Congress' website at: loc.gov and ask the Librarian this question they will probably be able to tell you what you are looking for, whether it is truthful or fictional. A lot of biographies of General Custer, Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickock and John Wesley Hardin are a bunch of junk. Custer was full of himself and was promoted to General by accident. Wyatt Earp and his brothers were chased out of California for horse stealing and when they moved to Tombstone he used to pay little kids to let him know when bad guys were in town. He would sneak out of his saloon and shoot them down from behind and because he and his brothers were the law no one contested there stories that he beat them in a fast draw contest. John Wesley Hardin was a drunk and a narcotic user. A lot of history(so-called) is based on penny-dreadfuls that were written to glorify the old west. And most of them were biased in favor of the people they were writing about. The truth is out there, you just have to research to find it. Good luck.

Why do schools teach that Custer died at the Battle of Little Big Horn? by Puddles Q: Custer survived his famous last stand, he was taken prisoner and prsented to the chief. As he was presented, Custer flashed the masonic gang sign, the chief(being a mason in good standing)immediately recognized the hand sign and spared Custers life.

A: Outside of America Custer is almost non existent.

Does the Custer channel-wing for aircraft really work? by dfrank_robinson Q: The story is that Willard Custer, a relative of The General Custer, invented an aircraft wing design with stupendous lift back in the 1920s. His orginal aircraft is in the Smithsonian collection, but nobody uses his design. Why not? Well, according to How Things Work, Custer's theory for his wing is sound; it's the spped of the ait over the wing that creates the static lift NOT the speed of the wing through the air- even the two go together. The speed of the air over the wing can be much higher than the speed of the wing (and aircraft) thought the air. It certainly is for subsonic flight. I still wonder why someone like Bert Rutan hasn't picked up on it. This seems really stange that no private experimental aircraft, at least, use the Custer channel-wing.

A: The custer channel wing advantage (high lift at relatively slow airspeed) simply doesn't offset its disadvantages (consruction compexity, weight and cost). Other concepts, such as deployable wing slots, slats and flaps accomplish the same thing at less cost and sacrifice in other attributes, such as high speed. There are numerous other examples of aircraft design ideas that have a singular merit but multiple disadvantages that make them economically and operationally uncompetitive. The combination "flying car" comes to mind. There have been several attempts to market one, but the fact is that the engineering trade-offs are too great. Yes, it's feasible to build them, but the result is a very poor performing but expensive car that flys equally poorly and inefficiently! Same reason aircraft on floats and "flying boats" aren't that popular. They fly slow with poor payload due the extra weight of the floats/hull and they are also very poor boats! They make sense in Alaska and Minnesota if you like to fly into fishing holes! And the list doesn't stop with aircraft. The fact is that optimizing a machine at one task usually sacrifices efficiency at another task. That's one reason there are so many different aircraft and vehicle designs, and two human genders. (Optimizing the human body to be a mother sacrfices certain attributes that make it an efficient hunter!) But good question! Keep up you curiosity! :-)

What did Custer get in his peace pipe when he convinced the native americans to sign the treaty's? by Q: I just wanted to clarify that if the native americans didn't smoke tobacco in their peace pipes until the Europeans came to Native America, then what did they smoke in them up until that time. Also what did Custer smoke in the peace pipe offered to him by the Native Americans, before the treaty's were signed?

A: tobacco is a plant native to america. we always smoked it and are the ones who introduced it to europeans. you're welcome. as for peace pipes...no such things except in the minds of non natives. they are pipes. just pipes. too many cowboy movies.
