This Day in History - June 25, 1876 - Custer's Last Stand

This Day in History. Today is known as Victory Day among many Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho people.

On this day-June 25, 1876-the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho peoples united to overcome, defeat and kill the entire US Army's 7th Cavalry led by General George Armstrong Custer. Many people know this as Custer's Last Stand and call what happened that day as a massacre.

The Hunkpapa, Minniconjou, Itazipco, Oglala and Sahiyela Lakota with the Cheyenne and Arapaho fought racism and won.

It was the only time the United States flag has been captured on Turtle Island and it belongs to the Lakota people. In the following decades, Custer and his troops came to be considered iconic, even heroic, figures in American history.
