1874 Custer Expedition Wagon Train

1874 Custer Expedition Wagon Train

This photo is part of the public record of Custer's 1874 exploration of the Black Hills. The wagon train filing through the valley looks like a string of pearls. The photo was taken in the Castle Creek Valley.

Reminds me of

"Into the valley of Death rode the six hundred."
A little piece of history there. Thanks for posting.
Wonder if it was taken by a Sioux scout? ;))

Re: Reminds me of

I doubt there are many artifacts left to be found from that expedition. But the Black Hills are full of old cabins, mines, mining equipment and more from the late 1800's. Makes for some interesting explorations while out hiking...
